As the Collaboratory funds and coordinates projects with university researchers and scientists across the UNC system, sharing the work that creates groundbreaking findings to inform policy and insights for future studies is also a part of the Collaboratory’s mission.

Sharing the findings of the Collaboratory’s diverse set of studies is imperative to creating cohesive research and policy decisions across North Carolina. Such diffusion of findings and ideas creates an atmosphere where researchers can learn from one another, decision makers have access to important information, and the public can gain an understanding of research that directly affects their everyday lives.
