|About the Canadian Business Ethics Research Network (CBERN)
CBERN mobilizes and profiles Canada’s rich pool of business ethics expertise across disciplines and sectors. CBERN creates opportunities for dialogue and knowledge sharing between business, economics, public policy, philosophy, law, political science, finance, environmental studies, sociology, and engineering.
CBERN members come from a variety of backgrounds including academic, business, government, civil society, NGO, consultant and First Nations.
CBERN supports strategic knowledge mobilization through a $2.1 million grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC), private funding initiatives and creative partnerships. CBERN crosses academic disciplines and economic sectors, promoting research with impact in the Canadian context and internationally.
Clusters engage interested participants across sectors in projects, public dialogue events, research development workshops, collaborative partnerships and capacity building through funding development and knowledge mobilization initiatives. CBERN supports cluster activities through the development of innovative online workspaces tailored to the needs of projects and members.
CBERN clusters are working groups of researchers and practitioners in areas that include:
CBERN supports Canadian PhD students across academic disciplines through our PhD Cluster. Opportunities include Research Assistantships for projects in our themed clusters, professional development, networking and mentorship opportunities, and research support.
The PhD Cluster hosts a national research program during CBERN's Annual Meeting. The Cluster also hosts at least one three-day national research meeting per year, with travel and accommodation subsidized by CBERN. Research Meetings invite the participation of faculty and non-faculty advisors with an aim to develop PhD works-in-progress for publication and presentation, and for other professional development activities.
