13nov12:00 pm- 1:00 pmMaking an Impact: Theory as a Tool for Change


Event Details

Dr. Mathieu Albert will present his study examining how CIHR’s intentions to foster inclusiveness and cooperation across disciplines were implemented in the agency’s own organizational structure between 2000 and 2015 (the Governing Council, the Institute Scientific Directors, and the Chairs of the College of Reviewers). The findings show that, while CIHR was created with the mandate to support the entire spectrum of health-related research—including the social sciences—this call for inclusiveness has not yet been materialized in the agency’s organizational structure. Social scientists, as well as researchers from neighbouring disciplines such as social epidemiology, health promotion and the humanities, are still confined to low levels of representation within CIHR’s highest echelons.
