The Institutional Strategic Initiatives portfolio increases the University of Toronto’s capacity to support large-scale, high-impact interdisciplinary research.
Global issues such as inequality, climate change and infectious diseases are some of
humanity’s grand challenges. They demand creative and innovative answers, a cross-disciplinary approach to address barriers and the scale of problems before us and can translate cutting-edge discovery into societal solutions.
As Canada’s top university and a global Top 20 institution, the University of Toronto is uniquely positioned to lead life-changing research and innovation. The Institutional Strategic Initiatives portfolio streamlines the process of building, growing and maintaining collaborations across disciplines. We enhance partnerships with external industry, community and philanthropic partners.
Drawing on the University’s deep research excellence, innovation and talent, the University’s strategic initiatives will ignite groundbreaking research that will create a better future for the generations to come.
