It is an iterative and interactive process of knowledge sharing between producers and users of research, including stakeholders, policy makers, practitioners and community members. It encompasses a wide range of activities, including knowledge synthesis, dissemination, transfer and exchange, and co-creation or co-production by researchers and knowledge users.
In addition to the activities carried out by its research teams, Sentinel North also deploys knowledge mobilization initiatives such as an author fund and a technology maturation fund.
