Double our research
Mandate: Devise strategies to help Concordia double the intensity and impact of its research.
Leader: Graham Carr, Vice-President, Research and Graduate Studies
Read the cross-institutional strategy for Double our Research.
Who was involved?
In the fall of 2015, the vice-president of Research and Graduate Studies convened an ad hoc committee comprising members of the University Research Committee and the Senate Research Committee to lead the strategy development work for a cross-institutional strategy to Double our Research. The mandate was to devise strategies to help Concordia double the intensity and impact of its research.
The Office of the Vice-President of Research and Graduate Studies consulted widely with the research community, and additional input was sought from academic departments and individual faculty, staff, and students via a questionnaire.
