2018 Strategic Research Plan goes to Senate

The Senate Advisory Research Committee (SARC) has reviewed the newly-drafted 2018 Strategic Research Plan and has recommended it for approval to Senate. ​The recommendation will be included as a Notice of Motion on the March 27, 2018 Senate agenda for approval at the April 17, 2018 Senate meeting.

“This has truly been a collaborative effort, through consultation with the community over the past 12 months and the inclusion of their extensive feedback ,” says John Fisher, Interim Vice-Principal (Research).   “In addition to guiding the future of Queen’s research by outlining areas of strength and priority, the SRP will set the tone for a positive and productive environment through its emphasis on diversity and inclusion in the broadest sense.  I am very pleased with the document, and the way in which it was shaped.”

The SRP is a component of broader integrated institutional planning that includes the Academic Plan, the Strategic Framework, as well as a variety of strategic documents that emerge from individual faculties and elsewhere. It identifies our institutional strength and excellence for further success through engagement with government, industry, and with regional, national and international partners.  It also fulfills the requirements for a variety of funding programs including the federal Canada Research Chairs (CRC) program, the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI), the Canada Excellence Research Chairs (CERC) program and the Canada First Research Excellence Fund (CFREF).

Please visit the Office of the Vice-Principal (Research) for information about how to provide feedback.
