Partners In Research’s (PIR) mandate is to educate the public about the importance and significance of research within the biomedical and natural sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics domains. With these awards we celebrate the promotion to the public of leading Canadian research through outreach activities and recognize the impact of this research on the lives of Canadians. An annual call for nominations is made by Partners In Research (in the fall) for outstanding candidates who mobilize groundbreaking findings through educational outreach and conduct exemplary and innovative research.
