2019-2020 Knowledge Mobilization Grants - uOttawa research centres and institutes
The purpose of the Knowledge Mobilization (KMb) Grants is to support our research centres and institutes, that receive annual operating funds from the Office of the Vice-President, Research, in implementing one or more knowledge mobilization activities in order to encourage collaboration and the dissemination of research results both within and beyond the academic community.
Priority for these grants will be given to applications for KMb activities that:
- Promote and facilitate interactions and exchanges with various stakeholders (decision-makers, policy-makers, practitioners, community members, patients, etc.);
- Allow for the development of meaningful relationships and network-building that could potentially lead to new initiatives;
- Engage students and community members in a meaningful way; and
- Support capacity-building (e.g. training initiatives).
The maximum amount awarded will be limited to $7000 per centre or institute. The grant must be spent within a year. Since KMb grants are funded through the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council’s (SSHRC) Exchange grant, the subject matter of the activity must be consistent with the SSHRC’s mandate and must engage one or more researchers from SSHRC research areas. Up to five grants will be awarded; allocation will be based on the quality of the applications and alignment with the evaluation criteria.
The submission deadline is January 30, 2020. Please submit the application, in a single PDF file, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Note that the applications should be submitted by, or on behalf of, the director of the centre or institute.
