This chapter outlines how knowledge is mobilised – produced, mediated and applied – to improve education practice and policy in Singapore. It begins with an introduction to Singapore's education system. It then describes how the problem of knowledge mobilisation theory is framed and how Singaporean researchers have developed a Research, Development and Innovation programme. The chapter ends with a discussion of how the Singapore experience may contribute to the international education research community's drive to increase its impact on policy and practice.

Keywords:   Knowledge mobilisation, Singapore, Research, Development and Innovation programme, Education policy
