NIRAKN mentors, supports and engages Indigenous researchers across disciplines and institutions through an extensive research capacity building program, which is designed to develop foundational and higher level skills as well as inform and transfer knowledge.  The research capacity building program involves introductory level research workshops delivered locally at participating institutions, an annual series of more advanced research workshops, Indigenous research methodologies masterclasses, critical reading groups, research residencies, access to networking, mentoring and other professional resources.

NIRAKN’s Collaborative Research Program provides a platform for cross-institutional and multidisciplinary Indigenous research.  The research efforts of NIRAKN’s four research Nodes and the Network Hub are geared towards producing measurable high quality research.  In addition to high quality original research and publications, NIRAKN also fosters engagement with Indigenous research and knowledges across the sector through international collaborations, symposiums, and seminars.
