Research projects

Athabasca University's IDEA Lab is a hub of innovation, where researchers use digital tools to push the boundaries of our understanding and create new solutions to complex problems.

With a wide range of projects spanning diverse fields, from microbiology and sustainability to language stigmatization and critical race studies, IDEA Lab is dedicated to supporting AU researchers solving the biggest challenges facing our world today.

Use the tool below to explore IDEA Lab projects.

Several times a year, IDEA Lab opens a call for applications through which we intake new projects. After the application deadline, the applications go through a review process which includes two stages.

In the first stage, SMEs prepare reports collectively representing a range of perspectives (planned technologies, knowledge mobilization, external grant plans, data management, etc.). Reviewers comment on each application's strengths, weaknesses, or risks.

In the second stage, a review panel meets to make final decisions based on the academic merit of the applications. With the comments gathered in the first stage, the review panel has the necessary insights to make well-informed decisions about the applications.
