Societal Impact

We invite experts in industry, civil society, healthcare and government to join global research leaders for in-depth, cross-sectoral conversations that drive change and innovation.

Our Knowledge Mobilization team creates custom impact plans with each of CIFAR’s research programs, taking into consideration emerging needs and trends in each of the sectors we serve.

Most of our meetings are by invitation-only. Please contact us if you would like to join our community of experts.
