Other Things to Note:

Accelerate Fellowship training activities are centered on two themes: Project planning and implementation and Strengthened communication and relationship building with partners. With each training activity, interns can develop skills, knowledge, and tools in alignment with the training themes. Because these skills are applicable to research projects, all participants will see improved results.

Training is nationally standardized and accessible across Canada through virtual coaching, webinars, online learning, and, in select cities, in-person workshops.
