Research at UCalgary

The University of Calgary is one of Canada’s top comprehensive research universities, with a mission to discover new knowledge and translate our discoveries into applications that provide benefits to our local, national and international communities.

UCalgary is driven by our Eyes High strategy to sharpen focus on research and scholarship, enrich the quality and breadth of learning, and integrate with the community. 

To achieve this goal, we designed our Research Plan to focus on three major priorities: Matching Strengths with Opportunities, Increasing Research Capacity, and Driving Innovation.

Participate in Research

We conduct research that changes the world.

UCalgary believes in thinking creatively and courageously, and in doing research that has a positive impact on our communities at home and around the world. Our scholars conduct research studies and clinical trials in a vast range of disciplines, from MRIs to understand childhood brain development, to online surveys that help us understand how people interact on social media.

And we need your help to do it.
