Community Engagement

The Owerko Centre's community goal is to enhance connections with the community that will inform and translate innovative research.

The Owerko Centre has three primary community engagement goals:

  1. To connect with community partners to inform and seek feedback about the research programs and projects at the Owerko Centre.
  2. To increasing public awareness of the Owerko Centre mission and vision.
  3. To develop opportunities for project partnerships and collaborations with stakeholders for Owerko Centre researchers and trainees.
