Abstract: Despite enthusiasm for the use of intermediation as a knowledge transfer strategy, there is little research documenting the conditions for its success. This article addresses the role of the intermediary in a collaborative research project. The focus is on how the intermediary facilitates the implementation of an interactive knowledge transfer model. Using a case study as part of a research strategy, we demonstrate that the success of a collaborative research project rests on the credibility and legitimacy of the intermediary, as well as its ability to encourage the involvement of all stakeholders. In fact, the collaborative leadership demonstrated by the intermediary helped to reconcile the various motivations of the project’s stakeholders as well as their views of the project’s usefulness. key words intermediary • liaison and transfer centre • knowledge transfer • interactive knowledge transfer key messages • Mediation activities of Liaison and transfer center were crucial in this collaborative project. • Governance structure and research design facilitated the involvement of the practitioner in the project. • Several actors at various levels of the project’s governance structure played the role of the intermediary mediator. • Researchers must regard the practitioners as co-researchers.
