ConnectNB is a student research stream in the Pathways to Professions experiential learning program at NB-IRDT – and a part of NB-IRDT’s Data Connect project. Through Data Connect (funded by a 3-year SSHRC Partnership Development Grant with the Government of New Brunswick), NB-IRDT is working towards creating an inventory of policy-relevant project ideas connecting students across NB with GNB to undertake research at NB-IRDT.

This summer, ConnectNB involved three undergraduate students from the University of New Brunswick. Under the leadership of Eva Christensen, they interviewed government leaders to identify student research opportunities and developed a networking framework to connect students, government, and academia through shared research interests.

Check out their infographic for more information on Data Connect and the impact connecting students with government research could have for our province.
