The 5th Fuse International Conference

The 2022 conference theme was “Learning from Setbacks and Successes”.

The Fifth Fuse International Conference on Knowledge Exchange in Public Health was a two-day conference that took place at The Crowne Plaza, Newcastle upon Tyne, UK in June 2022.

While the evidence base on successful practices in knowledge exchange is growing rapidly, much less attention has been given to documenting setbacks when academics, practitioners and policy makers collaborate (or not!) to develop, exchange or use different types of evidence. However, learning from these setbacks is just as important, if not more crucial, than celebrating successes.

This conference aimed to create a safe space in which academics, practitioners and policy makers can reflect together on the potential threats to successful knowledge exchange, in order to develop important lessons on how knowledge exchange practices and research can be improved, turning setbacks into successes.
