Library Showcase: Research Effectiveness
The Royal Roads Library is pleased to host, in collaboration with the Office of Research, a showcase of the Sustainability Research Effectiveness Program, led by Canada Research Chair and Professor Brian Belcher.
Showcase is the Library’s space for promoting Royal Roads’ innovative, applicable and real-world research. The exhibit will be available from August 9 to September 30 any time the library is open, with a formal launch event on August 19 from noon to 1 p.m. We welcome all members of the Royal Roads community and the public to join us 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 exhibition 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.
