Knowledge Mobilization Workshop

April 17, 2015

Knowledge Mobilization/Translation/Synthesis Workshop

Erin Huner
Research Officer,  Faculty of Social Science
Natalie Szudy
Research Consultant, Research Development and Services

May 14, 2015
1:00 – 3:00 pm
Social Science Centre, Room 9420 (Dean’s Office Suite)

This workshop was inspired by the fact that, across the Tri-Council (SSHRC/NSERC/CIHR) and large funding agencies outside of the Tri-Council, there is an increasing requirement that grant applications have a well-integrated Knowledge Mobilization/Translation/Synthesis strategy. As such, researchers are now not only tasked with describing how their primary research can be utilized outside the academy, but also by whom, and how.

The goal of the workshop is to help researchers think through this critical new research funding component, and give concrete examples and strategies for creating practical and appropriate Knowledge Mobilization/Translation/Synthesis plans.

RSVP by MAY 11, 2015, to Erin Huner, ehuner@uwo.ca
