As part of Phase 1 of the 25-year Laboratories Canada strategy, science-based departments and agencies (SBDAs) have come together to collaborate on science priority areas. Together, these groups, known as science hubs, are exploring opportunities to strengthen their research through enhanced interdisciplinary work, collaboration, and shared facilities and equipment.
These science hubs bring together federal and external partners to address key priorities in health and safety, security and regulation, resource management and a low-carbon economy, transportation safety, as well as cultural heritage and preservation.
