Webinar: Transition to Impact – Bringing Research to Practice [ARCHIVAL]


Enabling great research to have impact in the forensics community requires transitioning knowledge from the lab to the market. Come learn about the steps you can take to improve the likelihood of your research impacting practice.

Technology and knowledge transition is an integral part of creating impact from scientific research. As researchers, we want our findings to improve the practice of forensic science and benefit end-users across many different criminal justice system domains. In this webinar, we will help you think through what transition means for your project and highlight key factors that you should consider now to set yourself up for future success.
