2. Strategies for Fostering Social Innovation in Northwestern Ontario: A Community University Research Conversation

Date: March 5, 2018 2 pm–4 pm. Location: Faculty Lounge at Lakehead University.

This event will bring together Lakehead University researchers and community organizations to discuss topics of concern to Thunder Bay and the region. The conversations will allow community organizations to know what Lakehead researchers are working on, and will allow researchers to learn more about the needs of community organizations in their areas of interest. We also hope to learn more about how Lakehead University can make the process of forming research partnerships more accessible to the community. Posters featuring student community-based research will also be displayed to promote this conversation.
