Abstract

This paper discusses the issue of transferring knowledge from recent research to practitioners in the fast-paced world of development. Research is often not presented in a way that is easily digestible to practitioners, leading to a lag in industry adopting new findings. The REKON dissemination format is presented as a solution to this problem making knowledge about reconfigurable manufacturing systems (RMS) available for over 100 Danish manufacturing companies. The effectiveness of the REKON dissemination format is evaluated through surveys and initial results indicate that it has been successful in transferring knowledge about RMS and its potential to participating companies.
