Mark your calendars for an exciting learning and networking opportunity in Montréal on October 20th!
Special Workshop on Knowledge Translation and Brokering
Hyatt Regency Montréal, Québec
A knowledge exchange and networking event organized by Environment Canada’s Science and Technology Liaison, ResearchImpact, the Canadian Water Network, and other collaborators, under the auspices of the Canadian Science Policy Conference.
The first multi-sectoral event of its kind in Canada, the Special Workshop on Knowledge Translation and Brokering (KT/KB) will provide a dynamic and interactive forum for participants to network, share experiences and explore the role of KT/KB in strengthening science-policy linkages. The full-day workshop will take place on October 20, 2010 directly preceding the official opening of the Canadian Science Policy Conference. With a focus on engagement and learning, the agenda includes a keynote address by Andrew Campbell, an internationally recognized leader in KT/KB, open space to engage participants in focussed discussion, skills and capacity building sessions, and a panel with Canada’s KT/KB leaders. Participants will have the opportunity to develop new networks and knowledge, exchange best practices, and contribute to an active and growing KT/KB community. The workshop will speak broadly across sectors (including environment, agriculture and health), with relevance to those working at the science-policy interface, operating as knowledge brokers and/or translators, or seeking to develop contacts and greater awareness in this field. Participants are expected from government, academia, industry and other areas.
Registration is limited! Contact Sheila Allan, Environment Canada (S&T@ec.gc.ca) for more details on attending this important event.
