Research Impact Shaping our Future

We inspire research and scholarship excellence to advance social impact and sustainability—both within and beyond our community.

Each year, students and faculty at Queen’s engage in transformational research, generating new knowledge to help us tackle some of the world’s most pressing issues and societal challenges. Many of these challenges are articulated by the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).

Research plays an integral role in both achieving our vision and fulfilling our commitment to have a tangible and substantial global impact.

As a university for the future, we are committed to increasing the intensity and volume of exemplary, ground-breaking, and interdisciplinary research that aligns with the UN SDGs, whether fundamental, applied, or driven through community partnership.
