Learn ways to ensure your project makes a lasting impression

Knowledge Mobilization (KM) comes in all shapes and mixes, from briefing notes to workshops; community engagement to co-creation of research questions. Learn how through the KM Webinar Series. Starting in October 2018, the new KM Webinar Series will cover a variety of topics to help you harness the power of KM to ensure your project makes a lasting impression.

Knowledge Mobilization Webinar Series

The KM Core Team is hosting a series of webinars to increase awareness about the value and principles of KM. Aimed at students, young professionals, researchers and PI’s in the GWF network, the webinar series will provide content that touches on various elements of KM, share examples of successful initiatives in action, and discuss and troubleshoot common challenges that arise across the network. 

Scheduled between November 2018 and April 2019, the webinar series will facilitate:

  • your understanding of what KM is, what it isn't;
  • how to engage specific groups of end-users; and
  • can even help with your yearly reporting!

Webinar 2 (Nov 16): Maintaining KM Momentum: Keeping partners engaged

The second webinar in the series digs into one of the most critical components of knowledge mobilization - the engagement of partners. The projects funded by Global Water Futures have established a rich nexus of research partnerships including with industry, non-governmental groups, communities, and government entities at municipal, provincial and federal levels. Healthy and effective partnerships can enrich the experiences of researchers and the value of results through exposure to real problems and development of real solutions. Despite the significance of these relationships, it can be difficult to keep our partners engaged throughout the entire research process.

By participating in this webinar, you will find out why engagement can be so challenging, and receive specific action-oriented tips that will help ensure you're meeting the needs of your partners, while also meeting funding requirements and building your reputation as a trustworthy researcher.
