Training and resources

The Knowledge Exchange Unit will host the Knowledge Exchange Summer Institute from July 20 -24, 2020. This virtual course is the first edition of the Unit's training program and further editions will run in the future.  The course is intended for researchers across all disciplines and at all career stages, and is designed to develop practical skills and tangible strategies to help you plan and implement your knowledge exchange activities.

Spaces in the Summer Institute are limited, and a waiting list system will be in place once registrations have reached capacity.

UBC knowledge exchange environmental scan

We are working on mapping the professionals, units and resources supporting knowledge exchange at UBC. We want to provide a bird’s-eye view of the Kx expertise, tools, training, and grants available at UBC to help researchers, students and staff navigate the landscape of Kx support offered to them. The scan will not include researchers or research teams doing Kx.
