MetadataShow full item record
The BC-Alberta Social Economy Research Alliance (BALTA) is a community-university research partnership that was established in 2006 to undertake research to better understand and strengthen the social economy in Alberta and British Columbia, Canada. It has developed an innovative model of engaged research that puts a strong emphasis on co-construction of research between practitioners and academics. This powerpoint presentation to the CU-Expo Conference in May 2011 in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, provides an overview of the BALTA model and the results of an evaluation of that model.
