The Institute for Science, Society and Policy is a cross-faculty Institute at the University of Ottawa exploring the links between science, society and policy.

About the research

In addition to the research efforts of individual members and research clusters, the ISSP spearheads strategic research projects that mobilize and advance knowledge from the Institute’s vast network of scholars, students, partners and practitioners. These cross-faculty, cross-sectoral projects address grand challenges at the nexus of science, society and policy. In so doing, they foster new research collaborations, support innovative co-production and funding models, and help to advance the ISSP’s strategic vision of helping Canada transform decision-making to meet the grand challenges of our time.
