Current Research Excellence Clusters

Twenty-five research clusters led by researchers on the Vancouver campus have been funded through the Research Excellence Clusters Initiative. 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. 

Grants for catayzing research Clusters Competitions are available for clusters led by researchers at our Vancouver campus. 

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