Research Matters

Research Matters is a public outreach initiative that explores how Ontario university research affects everyday life, and improves the ways people live, work and play.

Research Matters is a collaborative project among Ontario’s 21 publicly assisted universities to build new bridges between university researchers and the broader public. It is a multi-platform endeavour that involves a website and blog, social media, and public events – all designed to give Ontarians unprecedented access to the wealth of ideas and innovations happening at Ontario universities.
