Description

In the Trenches: Implementation to Impact International Summit

Research and innovation (R&I) are the engine of sustainable social well-being and economic growth. The theme of this 1 ½ day summit is maximizing societal (i.e. health, environment, economic) impact of R&I through effective implementation and scale and spread of policies, practices, technologies and products. The Summit brings together local, national and international researchers, innovators and practitioners with expertise implementing across the R&I continuum to share ideas and best practices across the spectrum of stakeholders spanning health, clean energy, and business innovation sectors. Using presentations, panels and interactive sessions, participants and presenters will share experiences, practical solutions and emerging practices to address global and local challenges for bridging the valley of death from implementation to impact.

AIMS OF THE SUMMIT

  • Advance the science of implementation and impact by engaging in interdisciplinary dialogue
  • Share leading approaches and frameworks for implementation and impact, with a particular focus on scale and spread of research and innovation in local and international contexts
  • Engage the implementation and impact communities in a lively dialogue regarding common challenges and ways of working together to move implementation to impact in complex environments
  • Facilitate networking opportunities between impact and implementation communities, across sectors and jurisdictions

OBJECTIVES FOR PARTICIPANTS

By the end of this summit participants will:

  • Be exposed to leading approaches, frameworks and implementation practices for implementing and assessing scale and spread for impact
  • Be engaged in critical discussion with peers as well as local, national, and international cutting-edge thinkers and practitioners
  • Contribute to generating ideas and next steps for leading practices and sharing of practical tools and processes for advancing this work
  • Make new local, national, and international connections
