Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) have the potential to act as research dissemination channel that facilitates sustainable relationships with stakeholders beyond academia. The current research uses the Technology-Organisation-Environment (TOE) Framework to examine factors that potentially affect universities’ decision to adopt ICTs for research dissemination and community outreach. In order to evaluate the framework we propose following a case study approach by employing a triangulation of methods that will include interviews, document analysis and digital artefacts related to the selected Institutions’ outreach and engagement activities.
