Knowledge producers prefer conferences for knowledge exchange whereas intermediaries and users put a high value on face to face interaction. Barriers to knowledge exchange include nervousness about losing commercial advantage, perceptions of different interests between knowledge producers and users, time and costs of translational research, policy and regulation, public funding not prioritising translational opportunities. Enablers include developing fora, involving key actors and end users more systematically and better policy.
