Event Details

On Wednesday, November 22, 2017, The World Health Innovation Network (WIN) and the Ontario Ministry of Government and Consumer Services (MGCS) will host the 3rd Knowledge Translation Workshop - Capacity Building in Innovation Adoption & Procurement. The workshop is designed to share emerging findings and key lessons learned from across our research with all of the teams who have so graciously lent us their time and their insights. A unique opportunity for cross-sector dialogue, this event aims to foster capacity building for leading innovation among public sector organizations across the province. 

 Using a World Cafe model to enhance collaboration, this workshop will provide an opportunity to share recent research on Innovation Procurement and Innovation Adoption, with key partners across the province.

The World Cafe method is based on the premise that we are wiser together than any of us are alone. It's all about participation, and welcoming diversity so that we can learn from each other. It's not a top down communication process - each voice is valued equally and the focus is on sensing the "collective wisdom" that can exist between us when we really listen to each other and pay attention to the patterns that emerge within our concerns. The World Cafe: We Are Wiser Together (PDF 417K), Interview with Amy Lenzo, Collaborative Services blog (January, 2014).

The workshop will be held in the Maple Room on the Mezzanine level of the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel from 8:30am to 4:00pm. Onsite parking is available. Please enter the hotel through the main lobby where digital signage will be available. A representative from WIN will be at the registration table to greet you. A complimentary breakfast and lunch will be provided.
