The Knowledge Translation for Employment Research Center (KTER) develops and tests knowledge translation strategies designed to help vocational rehabilitation agencies and businesses find, understand, and use research related to employing people with disabilities. The Center identifies research findings that improve the lives of individuals with disabilities and, armed with this critical research, determines what informational needs are most pressing for individuals with disabilities and their families, vocational rehabilitation practitioners, the business community, and policymakers.
The KTER Center provides technical assistance and training to grantees to plan and engage in knowledge translation (KT) activities. The Center aims to enhance grantees' understanding of KT strategies, and then support them to conduct their own research, development, and dissemination.
The KTER Center is funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR).
