The research priorities and initiatives outlined in Lakehead's 2019-2024 Research Plan help advance Lakehead University’s overall pursuit of academic excellence. The Research Plan affirms our commitments to social responsibility through research priorities that explore social justice and sustainability, and initiatives related to community-engaged research and supporting innovation. Developing and nurturing local and global partnerships, including relationships with Indigenous partners, helps facilitate research across all disciplines. Entrepreneurship and innovation are often outcomes of research, and Lakehead is committed to leading innovation in Northwestern Ontario and Simcoe County in support of culturally appropriate and environmentally sustainable social and economic objectives. By enhancing research opportunities and training for students and postdoctoral fellows and advancing research excellence among students and faculty, Lakehead's Research Plan extends our commitment to capacity development.
