In the ideal situation, the broker knows both worlds very well (e.g. by working experience): their (common) values and interests, the timescales in which each world works, their (different) terminology, the degree of nuancedness and uncertainties to take into account (versus simplification only), their agenda(s), et cetera. Can be called a mediator; or agent, or science communicator, match maker, or stakeholder manager. 

Good luck in your search through brokering world!

I am also not a candidate for you to interview but am interested in what you are looking at. Your original post says what you aren't interested in but gives no indication of what you mean by the overall term. Without limiting it to anything specific, what does "knowledge brokering" mean?
