University Research Partners

The development of university and research partnerships enables researchers at the University of Winnipeg to connect their work beyond academia, network with industry and community organizations, and form collaborations that have the potential to make real change at the university level and society more broadly. Learn more about research partnerships with the Unviersity of Winnipeg below.

For questions about research partnerships, contact Lauren Bosc – Program Officer, Research Partnerships, l.bosc@uwinnipeg.ca.

Research Impact Canada

Research Impact Canada (RIC) is a pan-Canadian network of universities committed to maximizing the impact of academic research for the public good in local and global communities.

The Conversation Canada

The Conversation Canada launched in June 2017 with the University of Winnipeg joining as a founding partner. It is a website devoted to sharing timely academic analysis and commentary based on research evidence and insights generated by Canadian universities.

As a national non-profit organization, The Conversation Canada seeks to rectify a key challenge: a significant portion of scholarly knowledge remains relatively hidden in academic journals and is not available to the broader public. The Conversation model is based on fostering the broadest circulation of content and amplifying the impact of ideas and research.

All articles are free to republish by the media.

Canadian Centre for Diversity and Inclusion

Canadian Centre for Diversity and Inclusion and CCDI Consulting are forward-looking social organizations with research and learning woven into our DNA, tracing how people identify alongside demographic trends within the Canadian workplace to move employers from diversity to inclusion.

Their mission is to help those we work with be inclusive, free of prejudice and discrimination – and to generate the awareness, dialogue and action for people to recognize diversity as an asset and not an obstacle.
