Concordia University is evolving as a major research force with a solid base of seasoned researchers and scholars. We have an unprecedented cohort of new full-time faculty and a 100% increase in research grant and contract revenues over the past five years. Dedicated researchers in Concordia's research centres, institutes and laboratories are conducting groundbreaking research daily.
Our four dynamic Faculties are committed to providing the highest standards of research, scholarship and creative activity through social innovation, technological development and knowledge transfer. The creation of multi-disciplinary clusters and networks, national and international collaboration, and open dialogue on social and political issues are a priority.
Our commitment to strengthening our international profile and globalizing our teaching and research activities is evident by the growing number of international collaborations, and participation in strategic global initiatives and cooperation agreements. Our researchers are increasing collaborations across different disciplines and continents, with active participation in various network centres of excellence and consortia.
