District Research Leaders as Knowledge Mobilizers and Brokers

The role of district research leaders (DRLs) in central offices has emerged as a strategy for improving the creation, flow, and use of research knowledge in decision-making. However, there is limited information about the responsibilities, opportunities, and challenges inherent in these roles. The purpose of this study is to explore DRLs as knowledge mobilizers and brokers of research knowledge. Funding for this study is provided by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
