"Research as a tool for action: buzzword, fiction, or open-ended path?"
▲What happens to our research outside the comfort zone of academia? This lecture will deal with the so-called evidence-practice or evidence-policy gap, its dilemmas, and countermeasures. Based on the evolution of different approaches to knowledge translation and mobilization, ongoing discussions around the topic, and my experiences of doing research in the global south, I will reflect on what we know so far, the stories we tell ourselves, and the possibilities of doing research as a tool for action.
