On December 13, 2014, KNAER was moderator for #satchat on Twitter hosted by Brad Currie (@bradmcurrie) co-founder of #satchat. The chat focus was Research and Education.

KNAER proposed the following six questions:

Satchat questions

In this blog, we focus on the findings from the first question: In what way can research findings be used to inform policy and/or practice? The responses are compiled into four categories:

  1. How research helps.
  2. Using research
  3. Forward thinking research suggestions
  4. Challenges

Take a few moments to read through the responses given by #satchat participants.
