How to become a MIRA member and get on MIRA's Research Map
In order to facilitate interdisciplinary connections, MIRA partnered with the McMaster Experts team to develop its own interactive research map. This tool allows users to visualize how MIRA researchers are connected to each other across campus, and to MIRA's research projects and initiatives.
Displayed to the right, MIRA members have been asked to position themselves within the two-dimensional plot, with the Y-axis illustrating research output (policy, product/service or academic, where academic output is represented at the intersection with the X-axis), and the X-axis displaying the type of research conducted, from theory/discovery to practice/application.
The map is intended to allow MIRA researchers to view themselves as part of a broader community, and will facilitate connections by highlighting areas of strength and opportunity among MIRA members.
If you're interested in becoming a MIRA member, reach out to MIRA's research coordinator Gésine Alders at firstname.lastname@example.org today.
