The Office of Research provides faculty members with a variety of support services that enable the development of outstanding research programs in all disciplines, as part of our commitment to theStrategic Research Planof UNBC (http://www.unbc.ca/research/strategic-research-plan).

We assist with the development of research partnerships with local, provincial, national and international agencies and industry collaborators, thus contributing to a strong research funding base and continued improvements in research infrastructure.

Our office fosters and supports the high level of energy around, and intensity of, research conducted at UNBC, leading to increased capacity and productivity over time. We also engage in high-level advocacy to promote an environment in which world-class research may flourish at UNBC.

Through the Community and Industry Partnership Office (http://www.unbc.ca/research/community-and-industry-partnerships), the Office of Research also encourages and supports technology transfer and commercialization of research discoveries through patents, licenses, spin-off company creation and the development of new models for knowledge translation.
