TRU, City of Kamloops launch RiR program

February 9, 2021
Thompson Rivers University and the City of Kamloops have launched a three-year Researcher in Residence (RiR) pilot program. The RIR program engages TRU faculty and staff in city-driven research that will be used to potentially change policies, bylaws, and more. Research will also be used to create new services, programs, and partnerships. “This is not just about making the research resources of the university available to the City, but rather it is about working together and co-creating solutions to real world problems,” said Dr Will Garrett-Petts, AVP Research and Graduate Studies at TRU. “The new Researcher-in-Residence initiative is all about enhancing the impact of our collective research power.” TRU (BC)
