Background

The course (formally the Training Course on Health Research Impact Assessment hosted by Alberta Innovates – Health Solutions, AIHS) is a local affiliate of the International School on Research Impact Assessment (ISRIA) that was co-founded by Dr. Kathryn Graham of Alberta Innovates and has been designed to focus more exclusively on the development and implementation of RIIA within the regional context.

Establishment of the federal ministry of Innovation, Science and Economic Development is creating exciting times for the research and innovation impact agenda in Canada. This action signifies a renewed focus on performance measurement and evidence-informed decision making in Canada. Alberta Innovates (AI) is working with our partners throughout government, academic institutions, non-profit organizations, industry and the health research and innovation system locally, nationally and internationally to measure and report on impacts created through our collaborative efforts. It is an opportune time for a practical training course on how to assess the impact of research and innovation, one that incorporates both performance measurement and evaluation teachings.
