Knowledge Mobilisation

Expert knowledge is critical to solving the increasingly complex problems we face today.

But how do we ensure knowledge is valued, mobilised and disseminated so organisations are empowered to influence practice change?

Our vision is to fundamentally improve the way we live by bridging the gap between technical solutions and society.

Foundry helps design and deliver activities with industry or community users to develop products, disseminate knowledge and increase impact.

We develop tools and products for industry or research organisations to facilitate knowledge mobilisation and change industry practice.

We individually tailor a combination of assessment, product development and engagement tools for each client that enable organisations to:

  • Ensure expert knowledge is reaching the right people
  • Achieve adoption of new approaches
  • Demonstrate the impact of your knowledge and innovation

Foundry helps organisations achieve adoption of best practice approaches.

The work Foundry does through the Water Sensitive City (WSC) Index benchmarking has had a big impact in Western Australia. Their approach gets diverse people in the room for the first time and expands the areas of concern, interest and stewardship to beyond water to include liveability and wellbeing. The impact of Foundry’s work with the WSC benchmarking will continue to grow as Councils get on board and discover a shared language to talk about and plan for a water sensitive future.

What our clients say...

Lindsey successfully project managed and made invaluable intellectual contribution to a project that has the potential to save Victorian taxpayers multiple millions of dollars. Lindsey’s knowledge of stormwater policy and critical assessment of the situation, combined with her apt communication skills, helped lead to a desirable and swift outcome for Melbourne Water. I would not hesitate to engage Lindsey again for solutions to urban stormwater policy problems.

- Aquatic Scientist

I would definitely recommend Lindsey and her team. Her ability to take complex issues and frame them in a way that is understandable by the community was invaluable. Helping us to be really clear on the purpose, audience and key messages for our document was what made it a success.

- Project Director

We had a need for an engaging collaborative submission to a planning agency. Lindsey knows what she is doing and has the passion to see change and is intent on getting the job done to a point she will be proud of the outcome.
