Research and scholarship
We believe in research that can change the world. That's why we've committed to becoming one of Canada's top five research universities. We'll accomplish this goal by matching our strengths with opportunities, increasing our research capacity, and creating a dynamic environment to promote research excellence.
Researchers and city planners tackle important issues concerning transportation, waste reduction, energy and environment, youth crime, homelessness, poverty reduction and the integration of immigrants into our communities.
This community-based, interdisciplinary research platform has research arranged into four themes that define a great city: health, resiliency, vibrancy and equity. The makeCalgary team has grown over four years to include researchers and graduate students from architecture, public health, social work, kinesiology, urban design, and engineering, along with industry and community partners.
