Sentinel North Research Projects

Transdisciplinarity, innovation and partnership at the heart of research

The ambitious Sentinel North research program is articulated within large thematic research fields and several partnerships with major research collaborators from Université Laval and beyond.

With 38 research projects completed or underway, Sentinel North has achieved its goal of mobilizing a dynamic research community and generating dozens of new and innovative transdisciplinary collaborations between world-class researchers and recognized research centers from our institution and from the international.

A Transdisciplinary Approach to Research

 

sentinel north before after transdisciplinary collaborations

 

Above, networks of interdepartmental collaboration between Sentinel North’s researchers “before” and “after” program deployment. The “before” network shows collaborations between coauthors of interdepartmental publications between 2004 and 2014. The “after” network shows anticipated new interdepartmental collaborations resulting from joint publications under the 21 transdisciplinary sub-projects funded by Sentinel North following the first call for projects. The thickness of the interconnecting lines is proportional to the number of collaborators. The size of the nodes is proportional to the number of researchers in each department.
