PINacle Symposium

What is the PINacle Symposium?

The PINacle Symposium is an event that will allow researchers from diverse universities and disciplines to workshop ideas for impactful and innovative community research projects together with the communities they will impact and pursue funding for their idea as an outcome.

Municipality representatives will speak about the challenges they face, then faculty researchers will speak about their areas of interest and relevant projects. The Partnership will then facilitate breakout groups where they will form community-research teams to discuss application for the Partnership’s seed funding as an outcome.

Who Should Participate?
