Seven Research Excellence Clusters led by UBC Faculty of Applied Science members will receive funding through UBC's 2023/24 Grants for Catalyzing Research Clusters (GCRC) competition.

The GCRC enables the formation and growth of interdisciplinary research excellence clusters – networks of researchers from multiple disciplines working to address key societal problems – and to help these clusters produce a greater impact than would otherwise be possible.  

A total of 38 Research Excellence Clusters across UBC, both established and emerging, will be funded by the GCRC.
