About Skills for Research

Spanning the fall and winter semesters, Skills for Research Impact is a workshop series for University of Guelph faculty, research staff and graduate students interested in enhancing the impact of their research. Through sessions facilitated by impact experts, participants will learn how to successfully plan, execute and evaluate knowledge mobilization (or knowledge translation and transfer) activities. Learn more about each of the sessions at


Throughout the series, participants will gain skills that can be applied to their own research contexts, goals and projects. Workshops will be highly participatory and will provide practical knowledge, skills and tools that can be used right away. Join us online for one or multiple sessions! Letters of recognition are available upon request at the end of the series for those who attended all five virtual sessions. 


This workshop series is a collaboration between the Ontario Agri-Food Innovation Alliance, the Community Engaged Scholarship Institute, and the Research Innovation Office at the University of Guelph. For more information, contact us at
