Skills for Research Impact: Workshop Series

Skills for Research Impact: Workshop Series

Skills for Research Impact is a workshop series for University of Guelph faculty, research staff and graduate students interested in enhancing the impact of their research. Through monthly sessions facilitated by impact experts, participants learn how to successfully plan, execute and evaluate knowledge mobilization activities. Sessions cover topics key to effective research communications and engagement of non-academic audiences, including policy, industry and community stakeholders.

Throughout the series, participants are encouraged to apply the workshops’ content to their own research contexts and goals, and bring in real examples to work on. Workshops provide practical knowledge, skills and tools that can be used right away.

For information on specific session topics and registration, visit Skills for Research Impact. Upcoming workshops are also listed on CESI’s events page.

This workshop series was a collaboration between the Ontario Agri-Food Innovation Alliance, the Community Engaged Scholarship Institute (CESI) and the Research Innovation Office at the University of Guelph from 2019-2023. From 2023 onwards, it has been led by the Ontario Agri-Food Alliance and the Research Innovation Office.
