Panel Organized by: Dr. Marisa Beck, Institute for Science, Society and Policy, University of Ottawa / University d'Ottawa, Institut de recherche sur la science, la société et la politique publique

Terms like traditional knowledge, co-production, and inclusive innovation have become buzzwords in science policy circles. But focus is more on ‘the what’ of these terms than ‘the how’. What progress has been made toward truly embracing different ways of knowing, and different views, values and experiences in knowledge production, technological innovation, and public policymaking? This panel will discuss leading experiences and examples in the ‘how’ of inclusion. We will identify practical recommendations on how to turn terms like inclusive innovation, co-production and the interweaving of traditional knowledge and Western science from aspirations into common practice.
