COU campaign asks “What matters now?” in research

October 21, 2013

The Council of Ontario Universities (COU) has launched a new phase of its “Research Matters” campaign, which features a speaker series by a group of Ontario researchers who will attempt to answer the question: “What matters now?” in research. The event series spans 5 Ontario cities over 6 months, with top researchers discussing their work on a wide range of topics, from home-grown terror to planet hunting and artificial brains. The campaign also has a redesigned website, which includes blogs about individual researchers and their projects, and answers some interesting questions like “Is there life on other worlds?” and “How can sculpture save a baby’s life?” COU News Release | Research Matters Website
