IDEA to Impact

The IDEA to Impact: Knowledge Mobilization Fund helps IDEA Lab researchers transform their research into action.

Through this opportunity, AU researchers can:

  • enable digital-first knowledge mobilization
  • move IDEA Lab research into a real-world application to maximize impact
  • produce timely, engaging, and discoverable knowledge throughout the research process
  • build individual and institutional impact literacy

Engagement and mobilization efforts are supported through IDEA to Impact funding. Engagement efforts inform the production of new knowledge, and mobilization endeavours enhance the exchange and application of knowledge generated during the research phase.

Researchers may use the funding for activities such as:

  • bringing partners and knowledge users together to engage and collaborate
  • planning, executing, and assessing digital-first knowledge mobilization activities
  • creating digital-first knowledge products
  • repurposing an already developed knowledge product into a new digital format or for a different audience
