Organized by: University of Guelph

The challenges of evidence-based policy making and science-policy exchange are well documented and can be difficult to overcome. University of Guelph developed an innovative initiative designed to tackle these challenges by connecting decision-makers in government, industry, and civil society with academic experts for dialogue and knowledge exchange – the Policy Fellowship Program, supported by the Canada First Research Excellence program, Food from Thought. Join the program manager and a panel of past participants as they share insights and lessons learned from both the perspective of academia and policy about creating structures and conditions that support knowledge transfer and relationship-building for mutual and societal benefit
