Research Program Planning Workshop III 

Event Overlay

The BRN Research Workshop Series provides various opportunities for participants to improve their knowledge of existing research grants and equip them with relevant information and tools to navigate their academic careers and industry.

The Black Research Network’s Research Program Planning Workshop is a knowledge sharing initiative to help faculty, early-career researchers, postdoctoral and doctoral students propel their careers. 

In this workshop, Nicole Kaniki, director of EDI in research and innovation, will lead a collaborative research planning session utilizing tools to develop three-to-five-year research program plans. Along with U of T research officers, attendees will also learn successful approaches and strategies to prepare for grant opportunities, including SSHRC, CIHR & NSERC research grants.   

Workshops are open to Black and Indigenous faculty, postdoctoral scholars, doctoral students, junior faculty/early career researchers at the University of Toronto. Medical researchers and resident physicians who are building their research portfolios are encouraged to register.
