ARIS RIC 2021 Summit

  • Zoom


ARIS and Research Impact Canada (RIC) are working in collaboration to host the 2021 Conference on Research Impact & Public Engagement at the Intersection of the Future Workforce. This Summit represents the first time ARIS and RIC have brought our two communities together to learn from our collective expertise and network for future collaboration.

Plenary sessions, speakers, and panels will focus on research impact as drivers of economic and workforce development — including precollegiate and higher education, business and industry, and government partnerships. Participants will discuss the community to career pathways in the STEM technical workforce, improving workforce diversity, government efforts to enhance workforce development, and the role of public engagement and research impact.

Featured keynotes include:

  • Dr. Peter A. Eden, Landmark College
  • Matthew McKean, Business + Higher Education Roundtable (BHER)
