What is the Research Discovery Network?

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.

Several other U15 institutions have successfully implemented similar networks on the same platform, including the University of Ottawa, McGill University, and Dalhousie University.
