What is Community-Driven Research Day?
Traditionally, research activities are generated from the literature and funding priorities. Community-Driven Research Day provides a mechanism for the community to have a greater role in the research process, one in which Baltimore City organizations elevate their needs and identify the activities that would benefit from the support of researchers. This event provides an opportunity to match the skills of the local research community with community-defined research needs.
How does Community-Driven Research Day work?
Community projects selected to participate will each have a table to display information about their organization, their projects and research priorities. In “speed dating”-style, interested researchers will rotate throughout the room at prescribed times to learn more about each organization and see if there are mutually beneficial opportunities for collaborating. The speed dating session will be followed by a discussion led by a panel of individuals involved in community-based research. Attendees will have additional opportunity to discuss collaborations following the panel discussion. Light refreshments will be served.
UHI will offer up to $10,000 to support community-university collaborations that result from participating in the 2016 Community-Driven Research Day. These funds will support either one faculty-community proposal, two graduate student-community projects or three undergraduate-community projects.
