External Funding

Additional calls for funding proposals are often issued. We encourage researchers to contact their grants officer about emerging opportunities to determine what best suits their needs.

INDUSTRY-RELEVANT COLLABORATIVE RESEARCH

In addition to being a well-established path to research funds, conducting collaborative research with industry partners can be a great opportunity to work on projects with a direct and meaningful impact on the broader community. We play a principal role in ensuring the university, researchers and intellectual property are protected in research contracts. Programs include:

DEVELOPMENT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY OR KNOWLEDGE MOBILIZATION 

A number of funding streams are available that are specifically related to commercializing IP. In most cases, access to these funds is restricted to projects managed by the ORS. The ORS has to be directly involved in writing grant applications, commercialization and intellectual property protection plans, providing supporting documentation and ensuring that milestones are met. The following is an introduction to some programs. Please check this section frequently; new programs will be added as we learn about them.

A variety of programs exist to support enriched experience for students to carry out research programs with industry partners as part of their training.
