The purpose of the interviews was twofold. Firstly to gain a detailed understanding of the KMI projects undertaken by the theme and the activities that were embedded within the projects. Secondly to identify specific training needs relating to knowledge mobilisation and implementation within the theme teams.

Implementation activities were categorised using the initial categories outlined in the project proposal as a starting point with additional categories that emerged from the analysis process. Other issues arising from the interviews that related to the project objectives were also indexed and categorised.
