Our Research Missions

Our research strategy has been organized into four areas: sustainable bioeconomyclimate change adaptation and resiliencehealthy people and health care systems, and improved quality of life for Nova Scotians, representing some of the most pressing needs of the province. Each area is made up of four corresponding missions, which help to give shape to the ways research can contribute to achieving progress for Nova Scotia.
