Initiative 10: Research collaborations

Goal: More effectively connect UPEI research expertise with external stakeholders
Description: Support new research relationships inside (interdisciplinary) and outside (provincially, nationally and internationally) of our university by creating a plan for a culture of collaboration at UPEI; explore existing connections and identify specific targets for future research collaborations; explore the use of open data approaches to encourage partnerships; build networked scholarly identities and make available complete scholar profiles on IslandScholar, including grants; integrate these metadata with external repositories
Responsibility: Synapse/Library/Vice-President Research and Graduate Studies
Success measures: Increased number of research community connections; review and revision, where appropriate, of research constellation model; analytics of IslandScholar profiles and other relevant web platforms
