Strategies for Building Networks

Connecting Academics, Communities, and Governments with Dr. Thomas Bryer and Dr. Sofia Prysmakova

  • Hilton New Orleans Riverside, Two Poydras St, New Orleans, LA 70130

Workshop Description

Research funders are increasingly interested in the broader impact of research, beyond standard scholarly outputs and dissemination of research findings. This broader impact includes achieving impactful policy outcomes for communities, an emphasis on diversity, equity, and inclusion, and the uptake of research by practitioners to enhance quality of life and democratic systems. The capacity to achieve broad impact requires strategic partnerships and alliances between universities, communities, governments, and other organizational stakeholders. Using a real call for proposals from a grant funder as a practice tool, this workshop will interactively guide participants in the design and enactment of partnerships that provide mutual benefit across universities and communities. Participants will be given an opportunity to craft a plan to build or strengthen relationships with communities within their geographical area and to receive feedback from workshop leaders.
