Launching this summer, the Research Discovery Network (RDN) is a gateway for discovery of Queen's research and expertise. As a networking platform, the RDN breaks down traditional silos on campus, facilitating interdisciplinary connections between researchers and sparking new engagements with groups in academia, industry, the media, and communities on the local, national, and international stage.

Success at TIME and other U15 Universities
Since 2017, the Translational Institute of Medicine (TIME) has leveraged a discovery network to showcase the breadth of translational research and state-of-the-art technologies at Queen’s, and to maximize opportunities for its members to collaborate and share expertise. TIME’s network will be joined with the Queen’s RDN, allowing its members to discover and connect with researchers across the university.
View your research connections map to discover experts across the institution who share your research interests.
Create and export academic or funding CVs quickly and easily, using funding CV templates with built-in error checks.
Manage your Canadian Common CV (CCV) through the RDN, enjoying a more intuitive and streamlined interface.
Browse profiles for shared resources on campus to find state-of-the-art equipment that will accelerate your projects, and post your own equipment profiles to increase the return on investment.
Show where you have conducted research and fieldwork, and what expertise you have in regions around the world!
Spring 2021 - Onboarding Service
Prior to the launch of the network, the RDN project team will be building profiles for an initial cohort of researchers so that they can enjoy the benefits of the RDN as soon as the network is live.
This initial cohort will consist of researchers from Queen's research centres and institutes, as well as faculty researchers hired since 2017.
See the RDN Onboarding Service Guide for further details, including how you can help ensure your profile is built to your specifications!
Summer 2021 - Launch of the RDN
Once the network is launched, it will be accessible for use by all eligible researchers, while the Onboarding Service (i.e., profile-building) will continue to be offered through the remainder of the summer for faculty researchers. More information on how to create your account on the RDN will be provided closer to launch, so stay tuned!
