LOOKING AHEAD:
PRIORITIES AND OBJECTIVES
FOR THE FUTURE
In the coming year, the Institute will continue to advance its core mission and goals, based upon
the following strategic objectives:
Deliver world-class research discoveries by continuing to focus on advancing fundamental
research across Perimeter’s eight identified areas, encouraging complementary and
multidisciplinary approaches, and instilling a collaborative atmosphere which maximizes cross-
fertilization of ideas and increases the probability of breakthroughs.
Become the research home of a critical mass of the world’s leading theoretical physicists
by continuing to recruit top-level talent, offering collaboration and interaction opportunities
second to none, and fostering cooperative links throughout the Canadian and international
research community.
Create the world’s best environment and infrastructure for theoretical physics research,
training, and outreach.
Generate a flow-through of the most promising talent by recruiting top-calibre postdoctoral
researchers, facilitating researcher engagements with experimental and observational centres,
attracting and training brilliant young graduate students through the PSI program and recruiting
the best for further PhD training, and providing research training opportunities to promising
undergraduate students.
Become the second research home for many of the world’s outstanding theorists by
continuing to recruit top scientists to the Distinguished Research Chairs program, by attracting
Visiting Researchers, and through agreements that encourage joint activities between researchers
at Perimeter and leading centres throughout the world.
