Research Infrastructure

The Research Infrastructure Working Group is actively planning the structure, design, function, usage and naming of a new building to replace the existing Research Pavilion. This Group also ensures the maximum use of existing research space and assists with securing space for new research programs. In addition, the Group is actively developing and implementing a shared resources strategy that includes both facilities and equipment.
