About previous fuse conferences
Fuse founded the International Conference on Knowledge Exchange in Public Health as part of its mission to deliver world-class public health research, build sustainable capacity, and build effective and lasting partnerships.
The first conference was held in April 2011 and attracted more than 150 delegates from all over the world to Durham in North East England.
A second event themed “How to get practice into science” was hosted in 2013 by Tranzo at Tilburg University in Holland, followed by a third UK conference in April 2016 on the theme of “Evidence to Impact in Public Health" hosted by Fuse in Newcastle-Gateshead.
The fourth conference in Vancouver, Canada in May 2018 was held in partnership with the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research (MSFHR). This explored the challenges encountered when using evidence, including conflicting evidence, in policy-making.
IN 2020 the conference will make a welcome return to North East England. Fuse has partnered with the MSFHR in Canada, Cornell University in the USA, and Tilburg and Erasmus Universities in the Netherlands, to deliver what we hope will be an even bigger and better conference on all things knowledge exchange. The daring topic for the conference is "Learning from setbacks and successes".
