uRegina unveils strategic research plan

April 25, 2011

University of Regina president Vianne Timmons announced last Thursday a new strategic research plan that will help guide research at the university over the next 5 years. The plan identifies 3 signature research themes and 8 sub-themes reflecting areas of demonstrated expertise and sustained research excellence at the institution: sustainable development (energy and natural resources; environment); human development (health; human justice; safety and security; arts, culture, and heritage); and knowledge creation and discovery (information and communication; pure discovery-based research; community-based research). Since 2000, uRegina has doubled its external research funding. One objective is to build on that momentum, and support efforts to attract more funding, especially tri-council funding. uRegina News Release | Strategic Research Plan
