Awards for Published Research
There are many award opportunities for published research. Please consult this list to see what is available.
We encourage researchers to act on the opportunities presented in these lists. Often a nomination requires simply sending in an electronic copy of an article, or requesting that your publisher send in a copy of your book. And many of these awards encourage self-nominations. If you think your work fits a given award’s subject area, then please consider submitting.
If you are unsure about the rules for submitting, or the procedure for preparing a nomination, please contact Andrew Kuntze (email@example.com).

Below are some general uOttawa guidelines on the management of research funds.
Knowledge Mobilization means promoting and facilitating the use of research among knowledge users (stakeholders, decision makers, policy makers, practitioners, community members, patients, etc.) to help them make informed decisions about policies, programs, practices and behaviours. It encompasses a wide range of activities relating to the production and use of knowledge generated from research such as knowledge synthesis, dissemination, and co-creation by researchers and knowledge users.
The Research Office can offer support in developing a Knowledge Mobilization strategy and activities. Below are some examples of knowledge mobilization projects led by the Research Office:
