The project aims to exchange ideas across collaborating projects and their respective community partners about the type of knowledge that communities find useful. For example, is it the content/substance or the format/packaging of knowledge that matters most to them? It also aims to network nationally and internationally and across sectors in order to popularise the American Pragmatist approach to bridging the gap between theory and practice.
