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.

Data and research committee

MSSU provincial steering committee
