In the academic world, learning how to write a great funding proposal is a critical skill that can help set you apart and enhance your career. Effective knowledge mobilization (KM) plans are a key component of GWF user-led projects and will be a critical element in evaluating renewal proposals, and are also increasingly important in all tri-council and other funding programs.    

To help you in writing effective knowledge mobilization plans for research grants, this webinar features two experts in grant development from the University of Saskatchewan. The presentation is based on the knowledge mobilization framework developed by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), the principles of which can be adapted and applied broadly to NSERC, CIHR and other funding proposals.

You will leave the seminar with practical advice on how to develop specific activities and tools that facilitate the two-way exchange of research knowledge between researchers and partners, practitioners and users. We will cover topics including definitions of KM, scope of a good KM plan, how to tie your KM plan into the rest of your proposal, and knowing if your KM plan is successful. 

This seminar is open to anyone within the GWF network, but could be especially timely for researchers and project managers who are working on developing Pillar 3 project renewal proposals.
