Knowledge Mobilization Grants 2020-2021 - uOttawa research centres and institutes
Knowledge Mobilization (KMb) Grants are designed to support our research centres and institutes1 in implementing knowledge mobilization activities, to encourage collaboration and dissemination of research results within and beyond the academic community.
We recognize that achieving a more equitable, diverse and inclusive Canadian research enterprise is essential to creating the excellent, innovative and high impact research needed to seize opportunities and meet global challenges. Therefore, we will give special consideration to projects that involve knowledge users from underrepresented or disadvantaged groups.
We will give priority to applications for KMb activities that:
- Promote and facilitate exchanges with various stakeholders (decision makers, policy makers, practitioners, community members, patients, etc.)
- Help develop meaningful relationships and network building that can lead to new initiatives
- Engage students and community members in a meaningful way
- Support KMb capacity building (e.g., training initiatives)
The maximum amount awarded will be $7,000 per centre or institute. Grants must be used within a year. Since grants are funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council’s Exchange program, the activity must be consistent with SSHRC’s mandate and involve one or more researchers from SSHRC research areas. Up to five grants will be awarded, based on the quality of applications and alignment with evaluation criteria.
The submission deadline is March 24, 2021. Email your application in a single PDF file to innovation@uOttawa.ca. Note that applications should be submitted by or on behalf of the centre or institute director.
