At Laurier, we look for ways to link our research with the rest of the world. That’s because our work as researchers isn’t complete until the knowledge we build serves society. Our researchers often work together across disciplines to address issues of importance in the world. We have a global reach – in 2015/16, Laurier researchers were engaged in research projects across 37 countries and were active in global interdisciplinary networks, working to solve complex global issues.
Whether through forging connections with community groups, or by engaging with industry partners to commercialize laboratory advances, we strive to produce work that is worthy of the most prestigious academic journals and that also makes a positive impact in the world.
Laurier researchers have access to state-of-the-art research facilities, laboratories and equipment in a variety of locations on both the Waterloo and Brantford campuses. Much scientific research requiring lab space takes place at the Science Research Centre and the Centre for Cold Regions and Water Science. The Northdale Campus in Waterloo and the Research and Academic Centre (East and West) in Brantford are also home to a number of specialized research facilities.
Laurier, in partnership with the Government of the Northwest Territories, is in the process of building world-class research infrastructure in the Northwest Territories.
