The University of Toronto has been a Symplectic Elements client since 2020. Founded in 1827, the University of Toronto is Canada’s top university with a long history of challenging the impossible and transforming society through the ingenuity and resolve of its faculty, students, alumni and supporters. The university offers over 900 programs of study at its three campuses in the Greater Toronto Area and has affiliations with 14 teaching and research hospitals.
We are pleased to announce that U of T’s new public profile portal, DiscoverResearch, has gone live. DiscoverResearch highlights, celebrates and promotes U of T experts across all disciplines, and allows U of T scholars to showcase their research, publications and expertise to help spark discovery, connection and collaboration.
DiscoverResearch repurposes the rich and often unique data already collected within Symplectic Elements to populate fully-rounded profile pages including biographical information as well as publications, grants and professional & teaching activities.
U of T’s research priorities include deepening key international partnerships. By increasing the discoverability of both research outputs and researcher expertise through public profiles, U of T will be able to showcase its important work, highlight impact, and open new routes to collaboration and partnership.
“We are thrilled to launch DiscoverResearch,” said Barbara Fallon, Associate Vice-President Research at University of Toronto. “This tool connects our scholarly and research expertise with audiences like media, prospective graduate students, and academic collaborators, while simultaneously helping faculty keep track of the very important work they do. It is a game-changer for U of T.”
At the time of go-live, DiscoverResearch features more than 2,000 profiles.
