Knowledge Mobilization

About Knowledge Mobilization

Exchange – the act of giving and receiving – is central to knowledge mobilization at CIFAR. By connecting our research programs to global thought leaders outside of academia, we enrich research and stimulate new social, economic and technical innovations. We believe that targeted and customized engagements, early in a program’s life and sustained with regular interactions throughout a program’s term, have the most long-term – and potentially transformative – impact. Today, CIFAR focuses its knowledge mobilization in key sectors that align with CIFAR’s current portfolio of research programs: health, industry, government, and international development.

Research Briefs

Research Briefs are a summary of recent or seminal research from CIFAR fellows. These articles, from a variety of disciplines and originally published in top academic journals, serve the CIFAR mission by increasing the research impact of its scholars. These briefs are specifically curated to inform specialists, knowledge users and non-experts alike.

By connecting CIFAR research fellows to an audience poised to utilize the research results or act upon the body of work produced, CIFAR is creating new opportunities for research excellence and impact.
