Research Prizes and Awards
The University of Ottawa is home to many young, mid-career, and well-established research leaders and innovators who receive acknowledgement for their research achievements, ranging from university-based awards to provincial, national, and international awards, as well as discipline-specific recognition. These distinctions are further confirmation of the University’s ranking as one of Canada’s top research-intensive universities and underline the commitment of its professors to research excellence.
