Business Research Integration and Development Group (BRIDGE) Knowledge Centre


The mission for the Business Research Integration and Development Group at Edwards (BRIDGE) Knowledge Centre at the Edwards School of Business is to strengthen connections between researchers, industries, businesses, and community partners. We do this by:

  • Conducting research that BRIDGEs the gap between theory and practice;
  • Fostering impactful research and knowledge co-creation that focuses on the role that research can play in advancing practice;
  • Developing relevant research and providing knowledge exchange through industry and community forums aligned with our school’s core research areas;
  • Providing research support; and engaging in meaningful collaboration with communities.
We envision that this mission will require achieving a balance between basic and applied research, while expanding efforts to translate, synthesize, and communicate the relevance of research results and findings for practitioners, communities, and stakeholder groups. Ongoing activities we plan to engage in include a Research Network Hub, knowledge translation through various events and forums to engage industry and community, and graduate student and post-doctoral mentorship.


Our vision is to be the first knowledge centre in Saskatchewan that is recognized nationally and internationally as a leader in responsible, relevant business research that connects researchers, businesses, and communities.
