Building strong research partnerships between universities and diverse stakeholders

At the 2022 Annual General Meeting of the HIBAR Research Alliance, keynote speaker Dr. David Hart, Director of the Mitchell Center for Sustainability Solutions at the University of Maine, launched a discussion about sharing strategies for enabling universities to better partner with non-academic practitioners working to address specific societal challenges.

Dr. Hart and his colleagues have been engaged in an innovative collaboration with more than 200 faculty from nearly 30 academic disciplines to align university research with sustainability challenges, often in partnership with external organizations and community groups.
