Researchers at University of Ottawa collaborate with industry partners in many different ways including ideas, knowledge, processes, data and training.


The University of Ottawa’s LIFE Research Institute (LRI) takes a critical look at life trajectories in all of its complexities. We want to explore in greater detail how we end up where we end up in later life. Our bodies are complex and require approaches that are truly interdisciplinary. However, these bodies function in complex worlds that further require an understanding of the multitude of factors that influence our trajectories and those trajectories are influenced by decisions we make and choices that are available to us. We have intentionally embraced this complexity and chosen to group interested academics, policy makers, practitioners, the business sector and members of civil society to solve the challenges we face along this trajectory.
