A 45 per cent increase in external research income and a substantial rise in number of research projects highlight this year’s Sheridan College’s Research Annual Report.

The annual 2020-2021 report showcase’s Sheridan’s wide-ranging achievements in research, innovation and entrepreneurship projects and activities undertaken during what has been an unprecedented year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Among the many achievements the research report found was an improved performance in external research income, the number of research projects undertaken and completed, and the number faculty and students involved in research.

External research income from funding agencies and organizations at Sheridan increased by 45 per cent to $7,275,236.

Research projects rose from 117 to 170, highlighting, the schools says, the interest and expertise in research at Sheridan.

The number of students hired for research (821) and number of students involved in curriculum-based research (2,142) also went up significantly from the previous year.

“The past year has been one of tremendous change,” says Dr. Janet Morrison, President and Vice Chancellor. “Research, innovation and entrepreneurship at Sheridan rose to that challenge and this is evident in the many projects and impressive work represented in this Research Annual Report.

“Researchers were ready to pivot, quick to innovate, and willing to accelerate collaboration internally and externally, to help find answers to the issues that matter.”

The stories of research, innovation and entrepreneurship at Sheridan can be found online in the Sheridan Research Annual Report 2020-2021.
