Strategic Goal: Connect Our Work to the World

It is important to extend the impact of our academic community’s work and to celebrate its successes. Western Research will increase support for knowledge exchange efforts – within the academy, private and public sectors, civil society, and arts communities. We also continue to lead and support nominations for prestigious awards and distinctions, and promote achievements to various audiences.

Strategies to connect our work to the world include:



Knowledge Exchange Initiatives

Western Research continues to offer new knowledge exchange initiatives, including our Research Mobilization, Creation and Innovation Grants for SSHRC-Related Research, and support for programs like Inspiring Minds, which helps engage graduate students in succinctly communicating their work.
