Incorporating the SDGs in Research and Research Funding Proposals Across Disciplines

At the heart of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These goals recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests. Queen’s research is driving progress on many of the SDGs, with Queen’s recently ranked 3rd in the world and 1st in Canada and North America in the Times Higher Education (THE) Impact Rankings, which assess how universities are advancing the UN SDGs within and beyond their local communities. This panel will bring together four researchers from different disciplines who are leading the way in addressing SDGs.

This is an in-person only event.
