MSFHR Blogs

   

MSFHR publishes two blogs: Forward Thinking and KT Encounters plus occasional guest blogs.

Forward Thinking, MSFHR's staff blog, examines what it takes to be a responsive and responsible research funder and explores the world in which research funders operate today. 

KT Encounters is a series of guest blog posts which is designed to challenge our thinking and deepen our understanding about knowledge translation (KT), the broad range of activities meant to improve the use of research evidence in practice, policy and further research.


MSFHR's Dr. Julia Langton provides an overview of how we approach research impact assessment at the Foundation, and the tools in our assessment toolbox.

MSFHR's Dr. Les Grad provides a window into how we design, develop and evaluate our programs to ensure they achieve their goals and realize their desired impact.

In this installment of our Forward Thinking blog, Bev Holmes talks KT strategy and evaluation, and challenges funders to take a look at their KT activities for maximum impact.
