UBC's Office of the Vice-President Research and Innovation created the UBC Knowledge Exchange Unit in November 2018 to accelerate and increase societal research impact. The unit is part of Innovation UBC along with the University-Industry Liaison Office, entrepreneurship@UBC and Innovation Partnerships.
The UBC Knowledge Exchange Unit is UBC’s hub for contributing to public dialogue, policy, practice and arts and culture through the sharing of knowledge with communities, government agencies, non-profit organizations in BC, Canada and around the world.
Across the university, we foster a supportive culture of Kx and build capacity through training, resources and tailored support to help researchers engage in meaningful collaborations, communicate research effectively and demonstrate and celebrate the impacts of their work with and within communities.
