At CIFAR, knowledge mobilization (KMb) is the process by which the institute communicates knowledge and research breakthroughs generated within its programs to knowledge users (e.g., government, business & industry, NGOs, pan-governmental organizations, and practitioners) in order to increase the value of its research to society.
CIFAR engages in a number of KMb events each year. These events bring together CIFAR researchers and knowledge users in a targeted and interactive fashion in order to facilitate knowledge sharing. The events differ in their structure and makeup, depending on the nature of the research being discussed and the needs and interests of the knowledge user(s). A description of upcoming CIFAR KMb events is listed below.
