Knowledge Mobilization and Grant Proposal Writing: A Researcher’s Guide

Knowledge Mobilization and Grant Proposal Writing: A Researcher’s Guide

In an era of shrinking funds and increased demand for research dollars, granting agencies want to know the research they support will make a difference. This holds true whether an academic researcher or a community non-profit organization is awarded the grant. More than 100 academic researchers, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, research and administrative staff, business and community leaders, and government policy makers participated in a one-day workshop hosted by The Monieson Centre, Queen’s School of Business, and Queen’s Office of Research Services to learn methods to enhance knowledge mobilization, a key component of any grant application. Through hands-on exercises and discussion, the workshop clarified what it means to incorporate knowledge mobilization and translation activities into programs of research. Peter Levesque, a past SSHRC Director, and founder of Knowledge Mobilization Works! facilitated the workshop.
