Research Excellence Clusters

The VPR office is committed to supporting clusters of research excellence. These clusters are inter-departmental networks of researchers at UBC who collectively represent leaders in a particular field of study.

We are working with the Office of the Provost and VP Academic to support cluster development by engaging with the research community to:

  • identify clusters of research excellence,
  • engage with clusters in strategic planning, and
  • provide, when possible, seed funds for catalytic activities needed to attract further opportunities for growth. 

This work is enabled in part by the UBC Excellence Fund.
