Engagement Committees Opportunity

NB-IRDT recognizes that public engagement has a tremendous role to play in research and can lead to significant benefits for everyone involved. Some benefits include:

  • Fresh insights into research 
  • Better research questions
  • Greater research impact
  • Improved research quality
  • Increased accountability and transparency of research
  • Increased responsiveness of research to societal needs
  • Opportunity to build trust between researchers and citizens
  • Increased research visibility
  • Developing new transferable skills
  • Opening research access and understanding

As we move to having greater public engagement, NB-IRDT would like to invite interested parties to apply for two opportunities to participate and contribute as committee members. More information on these opportunities can be found in the below links.

Stay tuned for more opportunities to engagement in different areas of research. If you are interested in finding out about other upcoming opportunities please connect with us by email.
