Whose Facts actually Matter? How to Truly Embrace Inclusiveness in Science, Innovation and Policy

About the event

On November 14, at 1:30 PM, the ISSP was delighted to host a panel during the Canadian Science Policy Conference.

Terms like traditional knowledge, co-production, and inclusive innovation have become buzzwords in science policy circles. But focus is more on ‘the what’ of these terms than ‘the how’. What progress has been made toward truly embracing different ways of knowing, and different views, values and experiences in knowledge production, technological innovation, and public policymaking? This panel discussed leading experiences and examples in the ‘how’ of inclusion. We identified practical recommendations on how to turn terms like inclusive innovation, co-production and the interweaving of traditional knowledge and Western science from aspirations into common practice.
