Research and Innovation Impact Symposium

Together We Achieve Impact: A Symposium on Research and Innovation Impact was held on February 7, 2019. Thirty-eight stakeholders from across campus and various external organizations attended the day-long symposium presented by Dr. Kathryn Graham of Alberta Innovates. Dr. Graham is an expert in this area and presents nationally and internationally.

The goal for the symposium was to bring together stakeholders of the University of Regina to develop a shared understanding and common language around Research Impact – one of three strategic priorities of the university’s 2015-2020 Strategic Plan.

The symposium provided an overview of current knowledge and best practices in the field of research and innovation impact assessment (RIIA). RIIA offers much more than an after-the-fact accounting of research outcomes – it can be a transformational approach that integrates value co-creation, measurement and communication to optimize impact.
