Your partner organizations can be private, public or not-for-profit. You may involve whichever partner organizations you need to achieve your research goals and successfully mobilize your research results to achieve the desired impact. At least one of these partners must have a demonstrated ability to exploit such research results, while other partners may be chosen for their ability to generate and mobilize knowledge. Your partner organizations must collectively support the project through cash and/or in-kind contributions (See Funding your research project). In addition, every partner organization must do at least one of the following:
- play an active role in the project’s research activities
- utilize the project’s research results and achieve its desired outcomes
- play an active role in mobilizing knowledge to ensure that the research results have an impact
