TRAQ 2.0 Project

The Vice-Principal (Research) is pleased to announce a three-phase plan to modernize, upgrade and streamline research support services currently supported by Tools for Research at Queen’s (TRAQ) and Topaz Elements.

The new one-stop portal, slated to start a phased-in launch in mid-2021, will feature design and functionality changes that have been requested by our TRAQ and Topaz users over the past decade. The ultimate project goal is to remove barriers and make research administration at Queen’s more responsive and adaptable to the diverse and ever-changing landscape.
