Abstract

Background
For research to translate into impact, knowledge must be effectively mobilised beyond the academic domain. However, there is little consensus on the competencies (skills) required. This paper describes the development of a competency framework.

Methods
Four existing knowledge broker frameworks were synthesised through a process of (i) extraction, (ii) categorisation, (iii) cleaning and (iv) re-categorisation.

Results
A final set of 80 distinct, actively-phrased competencies in 11 categories was produced.

Discussion
This paper provides the first comprehensive framework for professional competences for impact beyond commercialization. The potential applications, implications for competencies and associated competence alongside further research are discussed.
