Knowledge Exchange is the mutually beneficial sharing of ideas, data, experience, and expertise, and involves collaboration between researchers and external organisations or the public. There are many potential pathways and outcomes from this reciprocity that demonstrate both the enhancement of academic research and the benefits to society and the economy. Knowledge Exchange is a reciprocal act which helps both parties, and has both tangible and intangible outcomes. A number of TORCH Knowledge Exchange projects operate within the fields of theatre and performance, outlined below.
For more details on collaborations between TORCH and theatres, please contact Dr Hannah Coleman Manktelow, TORCH Project Officer (Connecting Researchers with Oxfordshire Theatres).
