About the Webcast

This one-hour presentation introduces the Center on Knowledge Translation for Technology Transfer's (KT4TT) PUSH award within a broader knowledge translation (KT) context. The Product Utilization Support and Help (PUSH) award is a peer-to-peer dissemination activity. It is based on the identification and distribution of ‘best practice’ approaches to the development, transfer and/or production processes utilized by technology grantees funded through the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR).

The goal is to offer exemplars of research utilization that have been proven effective to the broader NIDRR community. As part of this webcast we will identify and discuss exemplar processes utilized by the first PUSH Award winner, CreateAbility Concepts, Inc., and also provide and discuss other examples of how other organizations can embed their KT efforts throughout the Technology Transfer process. More about this first PUSH award is described in KT4TT Update, Volume 2, Issue 1, 2010.
