Apply for a Co-Produced Research Award


Co-produced research awards support the development and advancement of co-produced knowledge. By “co-produced,” we mean knowledge that is developed under the auspices of a cooperative, mutually-respectful relationship between people whose practice springs from academia and those whose expertise arises from lived-experience within a given community. CGHE will team projects proposed by faculty/student and community partners that result in a co-produced product (ex., report or publication) that adds value to existing global health equity work. For more information about what co-produced knowledge is, have a look at these videos
