Workshop to help research funding applicants understand knowledge mobilization

Funding agencies seeking to maximize the impact of research are increasingly requiring applicants to submit plans for knowledge mobilization. A one-hour workshop on campus this week will present different approaches to organizing a knowledge mobilization plan.

The workshop, Effective Knowledge Mobilization Plans, is aimed at faculty members and graduate students applying for funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. It runs 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 29, in Vanier Hall’s Oak Room.

Facilitators Dragana Martinovic, research leadership chair in the Faculty of Education, and Natasha Wiebe, research funding officer in Research Services, will lead participants to experiment with different ways to structure their plans, drawing from peer feedback and resources offered during the workshop.

Attendees should bring a draft knowledge mobilization plan, if they have one. The workshop is free, but space is limited. Register by e-mailing  by Tuesday, September 27.
