The Sustainability Research Effectiveness Program welcomes all members of the Royal Roads community and the public to join us at the RRU Library Showcase on August 19 from noon to 1 p.m. for snacks and refreshments, and the opportunity to meet the team to learn more about its work.
The Sustainability Research Effectiveness Program aims to contribute to improved and more effective research. New research approaches are being developed to effectively address complex societal problems. As such, there is a need to investigate new ways of assessing and strengthening the social effects of research by learning from projects that are solutions-oriented, engaged and cross-disciplinary.
The exhibit presents information about the program, its methods and tools, projects and case studies, and other working partnerships. Showcase highlights include the program’s work with Royal Roads graduate students to assess how master and doctoral research contributes to change as well as collaborations with CGIAR that evaluate global research-for-development projects focused on sustainability and development.
If you cannot attend the event, you can visit the Sustainability Research Effectiveness exhibit in Showcase any time the library is open from August 9 to September 30.
