McMaster’s Research Activities Mapping Project (RAMP) is a Forward with Integrity-funded project, where an interdisciplinary team will develop an interactive visual representation of research expertise and interests at McMaster. The tool will consist of layered maps (geographical and conceptual) illustrating the University’s research activities and collaborations both locally and around the world. This resource is intended to facilitate knowledge mobilization and collaboration and to enhance the connections between undergraduate and graduate students and research activities, both within courses and beyond.
