In this roundtable, we explore developing structures for knowledge mobilization in two different institutional systems, a university and in health and social care. First, we will explore developing a knowledge mobilization hub at Simon Fraser University, exploring consideration for spaces, sources, and supports. We will discuss questions space in the context of remote working, of the future roles of institutional libraries, and how to assess the value and impact of knowledge mobilization supports. Next, will consider the delivery of safe, effective, person centred care and how a systems approach must be developed to maximise knowledge use. The structures, processes and culture change that are required to mobilize knowledge from research, experience and practice to develop into ‘learning systems’ will be explored.
