Each year, Research Matters picks a small team of researchers – at least one from each of Ontario's 21 publicly assisted universities – to participate directly in the Research Matters initiative. Researchers are chosen for the excellence and variety of their research, as well as for their enthusiasm for engaging with non-academic audiences. These researchers participate in public events across the province, sit down with government and business leaders, and take part in other Research Matters activities.
