Sustainability in Research

Sustainability in research encapsulates the ‘what’, ‘why’, ‘how’ and ‘who’ of research at McGill.

We consider research activities conducted both on campus and elsewhere. It includes themes such as collaboration, interdisciplinarity, community engagement, the social-ecological footprint of the research process, and applied student research.

Our vision for the future

A rich diversity of research is conducted at McGill by faculty, students, staff and community partners. We value both basic and problem-oriented research for their ability to generate knowledge and contribute to society.

Recognizing the interconnected nature of complex local, regional and global issues, we collaborate across disciplines to inform and advance solutions to contemporary problems. We are aware of and responsible for the environmental, economic and social implications of our research.
