The Telfer Forum series was created to fill the gap between researchers and the community, to foster Telfer’s research collaborations with the public and private sectors, and to facilitate knowledge uptake.
The Telfer researchers involved in this forum are part of Thriving Organizations and Societies (“Thriving Org”), a new Area of Strategic Impact recently launched at the Telfer School of Management.
