We have been collaborating with Professor Dale for the past 12 years, participating in a wide range of research projects, a strategic position paperfor the International Cooperatives Association; MC3: Meeting the Climate Change Challenge; Community Vitality Project; a regional workshop for the International Degrowth Movement; and the development of several policy papers, such as the Policy Agenda for Canadian Municipalities for Sustainable Development, to name only a few.
The Office will continue to explore new ways of ‘doing research’ and strategic research alliances with other sectors of Canadian society. We are committed to trans-disciplinary collaborative applied research to produce on-the-ground useful knowledge to diverse decision-makers. A key imperative is to continue to discover new ways to enhance social innovation for the take-up of this knowledge and innovative ways of communicating research outcomes.
