Partners & Knowledge Transfer

Co-production & Actionable Science Panel

The EFI Partners & Knowledge Transfer Working Group hosted a virtual panel on May 4, 2021 to discuss best practices and lessons learned for the co-production of scientific materials with stakeholders and decision makers. You can find a recording from that panel and the resources shared by the panelists HERE.

Overview of the Partners & Knowledge Transfer Group

The production and use of ecological forecasts often relies on partnerships between many organizations. The Partners working group is focused on fostering collaborations and forecast co-production among academics, government agencies, industry, NGOs, and citizen scientists. We are also interested in promoting the dissemination of ecological forecasts to help society better understand, manage, and conserve ecosystems.

The Terms of Reference provide an overview of the priorities of the Partners & Knowledge Transfer Working Group.
