Transition to Impact: Bringing Research to Practice - Archival
Enabling great research to have impact in the forensics community requires transitioning knowledge from the lab to the market. Learn about the steps you can take to improve the likelihood of your research impacting practice.
Technology and knowledge transition is an integral part of creating impact from scientific research. As researchers, we want our findings to improve the practice of forensic science and benefit end-users across many different criminal justice system domains. In this webinar, we helped attendees think through what transition means for your project and highlight key factors that you should consider now to set yourself up for future success.

In this webinar, you heard from both experts and peers about the importance of transition activities. They described end-user alignment, knowledge transfer, and commercialization activities that you should consider as you create your transition strategy. We helped you think through what transition means for your project and the transition factors that will impact your research and transition plan. This webinar covered topics like understanding your unique value proposition, end-user considerations, and positioning against competing alternatives. We also highlighted resources available to you as you develop and execute your unique transition strategy.

Detailed Learning Objectives:

1.	Participants will come away with a clear understanding of the importance of transition planning and the benefits of starting early.

2.	Participants will learn about a range of transition activities and be better able to determine which activities fit their unique needs.

3.	Participants will be informed about resources available to support them in their transition planning and execution.

Funding for this Forensic Technology Center of Excellence event has been provided by the National Institute of Justice.
