The Strategic Institutional Partnership (SIP) between Ghent University and the University of Toronto brings together the research expertise at both institutions to explore and test interdisciplinary responses to global challenges. This partnership builds on the research excellence of both partners and through technical cooperation with the public and private sectors and through international organisations, including the World Health Organization Collaborating Centres housed at both universities.
The SIP focuses on three thematic areas that align with the strategic research interests of the University of Toronto and Ghent University:
- Health equity & impact,
- Citizenship & societies, and
- Sustainable systems.
