Research Excellence Clusters Funded in 2020/21

Twenty-six research excellence clusters led by researchers on the Vancouver campus will be funded through the Research Excellence Clusters initiative in 2020/21. These clusters are inter-departmental networks of researchers at UBC who collectively represent leaders in a particular field of study.

Clusters are recognized as either established or emerging depending on multiple factors relating to their developmental stage and funding requirements.

The 26 Research Excellence Clusters receiving funding through the 2019 Grants for Catalyzing Research Clusters (GCRC) competition were selected in December 2019.
