The Canadian Institute for Advanced Research (CIFAR) program facilitates a multidisciplinary and cross-national look at how, why, and when the benefits of innovation aren’t always broadly shared. The program develops knowledge to design and implement innovation policies, programs and practices that support equitable economic growth and fair distribution around the globe.
As Co-Director, Professor Gingrich will help organise and lead the work of the interdisciplinary group, she said: “I have enjoyed working with the IEP group for the past 3 years and am excited to move into a leadership role.”
The CIFAR IEP program supports Professor Gingrich's research and work relating to the politics of technology and equality. Her research focuses largely on the politics of education and welfare policies, examining the politics of shifting policy in response to changing economic and political alignments.
