Bold thinking and innovative ideas don't happen in isolation.

UBC recognizes its responsibility to make academic knowledge more accessible, understandable and actionable. The university strives to be a unique, engaged partner in collaborative research programs and in the sharing of research outputs that enrich the lives of local and global communities.

The UBC Knowledge Exchange Unit builds capacity among researchers, students and staff across disciplines to develop and share impactful knowledge through connections and exchange with communities, government, not-for-profit organizations and the general public.
