K* 2012 – contribute anywhere, anytime!


Follow and participate in K*2012

For the first time K* 2012 brings together knowledge intermediaries working across the knowledge-policy interface all over the globe, to share experience, lessons learned and build a global community of knowledge practitioners. The conference will be held in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada from the 25th– 27th April. Can’t make it to Canada? You don’t need to miss out as we bring the K* 2012 experience and global community to you. With full social media reporting, including blogs, video interviews, live tweets and much more, we are mobilising the power of social media so you can contribute to the conference anywhere, anytime!

We are especially keen to amplify Southern voices to ensure that Southern research knowledge and the barriers facing Southern researchers contribute to a fruitful discussion.
