Research Excellence Clusters Funded in 2019

Twenty-seven research excellence clusters led by researchers on the Vancouver campus are currently 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.

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

The 27 Research Excellence Clusters receiving funding through the 2018 Grants for Catalyzing Research Clusters (GCRC) competition were announced in December 2018.
