The Resources for Research at Queen’s (R4R@Q) series is a monthly, brown bag lunchtime series meant to connect Queen’s researchers with the resources and people that can help chart a course for research success.

Now in its second season, the series is led by University Research Services in collaboration with the Library, Office of Partnerships and Innovation, ITS, Office of the Vice-Principal (Research), the Centre for Advanced Computing, and University Relations. The partnership demonstrates the variety of units and departments across campus that have a critical role to play in the research trajectory – from idea inception to commercialization.

“This series connects the research community with the people and resources they can leverage for success in their research careers,” says Kimberly Woodhouse, Interim Vice-Principal (Research). “Subjects include tools for research, but also topical issues such as cybersecurity and advanced computing.”

Beginning Wednesday (Oct. 23), R4R@Q sessions will run monthly until April from 12:30-1:30 pm. Topics for this academic year include data management, building an effective research plan, and media relations.
