Les courtiers du savoir, nouveaux intermédiaires de la science

Abstract : The usual way of conceiving the movement and positioning of knowledge brokers is to imagine them "in-between" two worlds (producers and users of knowledge). But their movements are much more varied, multidimensional and multifaceted. We detect at least four kinds of trajectories: first, the will and the work involved to engage in a brokering project (moving into), then, the moving between different worlds and the moving alongside actors and, finally, the detachment and getting away from these actors (moving away). Knowledge brokering is, in fact, based upon a very particular participative connection: a connection that is necessarily temporary, transient and flexible. Knowledge brokers accomplish a threefold task: distributing knowledge, translating and transforming knowledge and, finally, rendering knowledge more robust.
