Launching this fall, 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.

Summer 2021 - RDN Onboarding Service
As part of the RDN Onboarding Service this summer, the RDN project team built over 1,000 profiles for faculty researchers, engaging directly with nearly a quarter of those members to seek feedback and guidance.
October 2021 - Early Access & Information Sessions
Early access to the RDN will be provided to approximately 200 faculty researchers who participated in this summer's Onboarding Service. This early access will not only allow these members to enjoy the benefits of the network, but will also help the RDN project team to identify and address any bugs in the system before the full launch.
Information sessions for the Queen's community will also be run in October to preview the RDN and discuss how accounts can be claimed this fall.
November 2021 - Network Launch
The RDN will be opened to all eligible members of the research community in November, with both live and self-serve training opportunities being offered at that time.
