Government of Canada, Networks of Centres of Excellence of Canada: Networks of Centres of Excellence Knowledge Mobilization (NCE-KM) Initiative

The objective of the NCE-KM Initiative is to support 1) collaborations between knowledge producers and knowledge users from various disciplines, sectors and institutions including industry, government, not-for-profit organizations, 2) various sources and types of knowledge for the social, economic, technological and/or wellness benefit of the Canadian population, 3) networks that focus on addressing key problems, challenges and opportunities of high strategic importance to Canada.

 

The program supports networks pursuing knowledge translation along the entire spectrum: from the range of activities encompassed in knowledge mobilization (e.g., creation of activities and tools designed to put knowledge into active service, often through the establishment of new or modification of existing policies, processes and standards) to those encompassed in commercialization (e.g., the transformation of knowledge or technology into marketable goods, processes or services).
