Partnership with cities, communities and NPOs usually require a different level of information sharing and goal setting. Also, different funding sources have a variety of eligibility guidelines. How does one find the right partner and initiate a fruitful conversation with them towards a research collaboration? How can a researcher navigate through available funding opportunities? In this panel, we will be hearing from peer researchers and professionals active in community engagement and partnership building who have gone through the process and can share their experiences and lessons learned.
