SFU Knowledge Mobilization
SFU Knowledge Mobilization is a university-wide strategic initiative. Simon Fraser University is committed to becoming a world leader in knowledge mobilization, building on a strong foundation of fundamental and applied research. From discovery to knowledge mobilization, SFU’s eight faculties are engaged in the full spectrum of research, building on a robust tradition of interdisciplinary investigation and collaboration. SFU’s commitment to engagement informs how we disseminate knowledge, and how we contribute to citizenship in local communities across Canada and around the world.
Get your research out there
SFU is committed to providing sustained resources to support researchers in sharing research findings with wider communities in meaningful ways. This commitment to knowledge mobilization is intended to facilitate wider public engagement with research and deepen connections between researchers and knowledge users. As a part of this initiative, the university has established SFU's Knowledge Mobilization Hub that will provide services and supports to SFU researchers across all three campuses.
SFU's Knowledge Mobilization Hub is growing the culture of knowledge mobilization at the university, expanding the scope of knowledge mobilization resources, and helping SFU faculty, students and staff access SFU’s existing resources.
The Hub is located in the SFU Library Research Commons at the W.A.C. Bennett Library, SFU's Burnaby campus.
Services available through SFU's Knowledge Mobilization Hub are provided by Lupin Battersby, Knowledge Mobilization Officer. Connect with Lupin for support with:
- SFU Knowledge Mobilization resource navigation
- Pre- and post-grant knowledge mobilization planning and facilitation
- Tailored training in knowledge mobilization principles, frameworks and skills
