UBC’s 2023 Partnering in Research Conference
Today's societal challenges are urgent and complex; they demand the creation of new knowledge and its accelerated translation into action, and cannot be resolved by the actions of a single institution or group. That's why partnered research, a collaborative approach that brings together academic institutions and wider communities, is crucial for tackling issues such as climate change, health disparities and social inequalities. At UBC's Partnering in Research Conference, we're bringing together 200 faculty, staff, students and community partners from across BC to discuss how we can collaborate meaningfully for greater impact.
Join us as we explore the ethical, cultural and political challenges of partnered research and develop strategies for driving real change.
What is partnered research?
We define partnered research as the collaboration between institutions of higher education and wider communities for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of partnership and reciprocity.
The purpose of partnered research is to foster connections between university knowledge and resources and those of the public and private sectors to enrich scholarship, research, and creative activity; to address critical societal issues; to prepare educated, engaged citizens; to support reconciliation and decolonization; to strengthen civic responsibility; and to contribute to the public good.
What to expect
The event is open to UBC faculty, staff, graduate students and external partners who collaborate with UBC.
- Hear inspiring stories of collaboration from fellow researchers and external partners
- Discover how to establish and maintain ethical, equitable and inclusive partnerships
- Network with a diverse group of practitioners from a variety of research disciplines.
