Research

UPEI is a growing centre of research excellence in Atlantic Canada. Our Strategic Research Plan identifies eleven areas of research expertise, divided into three main categories or constellations: Environment, Health, and Community and Culture.

In the past two years, UPEI researchers and graduate students have benefited from more than $2.6 million in grants and paid internships through Mitacs-partnered funding programs, thanks to support from UPEI’s Office of Commercialization, Industry, and Innovation (OCII) and Office of Research Services (ORS). 

 

The number of graduate students at UPEI has grown in the past decade by more than 200 per cent, with several new programs offered across eight academic faculties and schools.
