Social Science, Arts and Humanities (SSAH) knowledge transfer is fundamentally different to more traditional areas of Knowledge Transfer.  Perhaps the more significant differences are: less emphasis, or likelihood, of formal IP (particularly patents); the long-term nature of the relationships; more complex (and often informal) exchange of value and researcher’s motivations.  This has a profound effect on the nature of knowledge and technology transfer in SSAH and it is these differences that are worth exploring in order to develop SSAH-specific strategies.  Knowledge transfer in the SSAH is often seen as ‘softer’ that in the ‘harder’ sciences – in this course, we hope to show that the impact can be far more profound and the tactics we use richer, more creative and more challenging.
