Researchers are already active in research impact because it is a function of most Canadian grant applications whether they are crafting knowledge mobilization strategies for SSHRC, knowledge translation strategies for CIHR and health charities or commercialization strategies for NSERC. If researchers have to care, then so do research administrators. But are our research institutions ready to support the impact efforts of our researchers? This webinar will present a new tool to assess the state of "impact readiness" for your institution. It allows institutional self assessment based along five impact criteria: commitment, connectivity, co-production, competencies and clarity. Once the self assessment is complete the tool identifies areas for institutional development.
In advance of the webinar, participants will receive the institutional healthcheck workbook and the peer reviewed articles on which it is based.
