The Blue Charter Knowledge Exchange Training Programme is a bespoke course that aims to help enhance the impact of research dissemination activities undertaken by early-career researchers (ECRs) working in the field of marine science. By enhancing knowledge exchange and communication skills, the programme will support researchers to better promote best practices, effective interventions and innovative solutions emerging from their area of research.
Researchers may be nominated to enrol in the training. Those who complete the course will also have an opportunity to apply for up to GBP 2000 under the Blue Charter Knowledge Exchange Grant Scheme designed to support successful researchers in the practical application of the skills they learned.
Please read the training programme course overview for details on course content.

The Blue Charter Knowledge Exchange Training Programme and Grant Scheme have been developed as part of the second cohort of the Blue Charter Fellowships Programme with funding from Waitrose & Partners.
The programme changed my perspective on how to conduct research for the purpose of knowledge exchange. I was able to understand more on how to conduct research that will have the expected impact, and it has been of enormous benefit to my career.
