What does it mean to “co-produce” knowledge, and why is this important to communities as well as universities? How can co-production lead to better articulation of research questions? How can co-produced knowledge facilitate evidence uptake in programming and policy? How can knowledge jointly produced by communities and university researchers promote health equity?

Throughout this series, we will explore these questions and:

  • discover how co-produced knowledge can promote health equity for individuals;
  • understand the importance of ethics, rigor, and relevance in the co-production of knowledge;
  • learn how to develop and nurture reciprocal partnerships; and
  • discuss barriers to engaging in the co-production of knowledge—and how to dismantle them.

Through presentations, “how-to” pointers, and discussions, we will evaluate current thinking about jointly-produced knowledge, and identify best practices for engaging in co-produced scholarship and action.
