This is an analysis of an online discussion on “Knowledge Brokering and Intermediary concepts” that ran between September and October 2010. It was the first discussion organised by the newly created Knowledge Brokers’ Forum. The discussion received 42 postings from 22 members over a three week period (at the time of the discussion there were 230 members that had joined the forum). This summary covers the period of the discussion including a few contributions after the end of the discussion that related closely to the topic areas. This paper aims to provide an analysis of the range of postings in order to contribute to a broader understanding of the role of knowledge brokers. It also points to future areas of discussion and action which could be taken forward through the Knowledge Brokers’ Forum or other related initiatives.
