In September 2022, CREW attended the Leading Ideas Hub at The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh, a two-day event organised by SEFARI Gateway. The event brought together a range of professionals to share ideas and advice on best knowledge exchange practice. It was a great opportunity to meet other scientists, policy advisors and stakeholders to explore methods, best practice and innovation in knowledge exchange.

Across the two days the presentations focused on five key themes: engagement, skills, collaboration, innovation and impact. The sessions were led by a diverse range of speakers that shared their wealth of experience from different perspectives, which enabled interesting and engaging panel discussions. The event ended with Knowledge Broker Julia Mitchell head of Knowledge Exchange and Impact at the Rowett Institute highlighting ‘This knowledge exchange event is not the end of the story for us: it's the beginning of many new connections and the next step in valuable collaborations’.
