Post Cards From Congress – Day 1

Congress Day 1Day 1: Maple Leaf Gardens, Toronto. The sight of Stanley Cup wins (well, not since 1967), boxing championships and concerts. And now the Congress of the Sciences and Humanities. Research Impact Canada is hanging out right next to our SSHRC friends. Day 1 saw a total of 40 conversations about knowledge mobilization and impacts of research. Among those 40 were two conversations with non profit organizations seeking to work with academic researchers…enter knowledge mobilization.
That’s what we do. We help researchers, students and non academic partners work together. As a community of practice with 12 university members we share tools and services so we can all improve our own practices. At our booth we have tools to help develop knowledge mobilization strategies in grant applications that are in good demand.
If you’re at Congress swing by booth 15 and come mobilize some knowledge.
