This session explores applied research partnerships between Mitacs, academia, and for-profit and not-for-profit organizations, where sociocultural and socioeconomic sensitivity are 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.
