Research Centres and Institutes
Queen’s is home to 20 institutional and faculty-based research centres and institutes that support interdisciplinary networks addressing critical questions ranging from dark matter, to divisive societies, and energy transition.
Discovery and curiosity-driven research centres and institutes bring together scholars across disciplines to pursue fundamental and applied research that addresses grand challenges and societal issues of national and international scope.
Approved through the governing body of the Queen’s University Senate, research centres and institutes play an integral role in advancing the research mission and in attracting and retaining leading researchers at Queen’s. They are excellent indicators of research strengths and are utilized as a vehicle for promoting and facilitating multidisciplinary collaboration. Through their research output, partnerships, and collaborations, and unique opportunities for students, most of our centres and institutes have garnered national and international reputations as leaders in their respective fields.
