This 2-part session explores applied research partnerships between Mitacs, academia and for profit and not-for profit organisations, where sociocultural and socioeconomic sensitivity is required. Speakers will describe their process of developing relationships, working in co-construction, ensuring research is driven by the needs of community as well as the importance of youth involvement, capacity building and knowledge mobilization. They will describe the development of these partnerships as well as the organizational, financial and educational supports, and highlight a number of key partnership projects with particular relevance to the social sciences and humanities. You are invited to watch the presentations in your own time. Please go to the On Demand tab and select June 3rd to find our pre-recorded video entitled “Developing Research Partnerships In Canada’s North - Opportunities And Challenges: How Social Sciences Can Contribute?”. Then on June 3rd attend the live Question and Answer session. For those of you unable to view the presentations in advance, the live Q&A session will start with a short summary. The recorded presentations will be available online from May 25th, and run for a total of about 40 minutes. After watching the recorded presentations, you will be invited to submit questions in advance of the live session. Two lucky people who submit questions that are used in the live session will each be awarded a $1500 voucher towards the partner contribution cost of a Mitacs internship project.
