The KTER Center has recently updated its scope of work

The Center on Knowledge Translation for Employment Research (the KTER Center) identifies and promotes the effective and appropriate use of research-based knowledge addressing stakeholders’ informational needs related to employment for individuals with disabilities, and knowledge translation (KT) strategies to increase the use of high-quality employment-related research. In collaboration with the Council of State Administrators of Vocational Rehabilitation (CSAVR), fellow researchers, people with disabilities, and community stakeholders, the KTER Center investigates existing and new KT strategies regarding barriers to and facilitators of the use of research in vocational rehabilitation (VR) settings. VR counselors are the linchpins of the employment process, engaging both adults with disabilities in search of employment and the businesses who seek to hire qualified employees. The KTER Center continues to provide KT support to employment-focused National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) grantees as well as technical assistance and dissemination support to enhance the use of this important research.

This website is currently under construction to match this new scope of work.
