Day 3: Another great day with over 50 substantive conversations at the Research Impact Canada booth. Yet again we had another non-academic organization swing by to inquire about our services. Food Secure Canada is already working with researchers across Canada including York University’s Rod McRae. However, there are always new research needs emerging and we will stay in touch to see how the 12 Research Impact Canada universities can work with Food Secure Canada to held advance food security. Another York researcher, Nick Mulé dropped by for a chat about his work on advocacy, social inclusion/exclusion of gender and sexually diverse populations. KMb York has worked with Nick in the past but this year Nick asked if we had any supports for infographics.
Well, enter our partnership with Kids Brain Health Network and the many guides we have produced with them on KT Planning, stakeholder engagement, social media and…yes…infographics. The Infographic Guide of Guides is an annotated bibliography of a number of web based infographic guides plus worksheets to help researchers, students and partners co-create infographics. This is complemented by hands on support by KMb York and the KT Core of Kids Brain Health Network.
While KMb York is anchoring the Research Impact Canada booth at Congress, we are also keen to help out the many York researchers who attend Congress every year.
