The Office of Research Services (ORS), under the umbrella of the Office of the Vice-President (Research), provides both pre-award and post-award support services to faculty members, researchers and external partners, as well as making connections with new partners.

  • Pre-Award Services acts as the facilitator in dealings between the researcher, external partners and our funders. This division strives to provide support services for both grants and contracts. Pre-Award Services often works with external parners to determine the correct funding model for each opportunity. 

  • Post-Award Services (Research Financial Services) provides a range of helpful financial services, including accounting and financial administration, for all research funding (e.g., grants, contracts, contribution agreements, etc.).

  • Industry-Government Services focuses on opportunity development, research partnerships, and technology and knowledge transfer.

ORS seeks to support faculty members and researchers on both campuses in all stages of the research funding process. The office also helps to connect you with funding agencies, industry and external partners; promotes and facilitates partnerships between UNB and other research organizations; and handles the transfer of knowledge and technology to industry and other users.

ORS would like to acknowledge the support provided by the federal Research Support Fund program, Springboard Atlantic and the Province of New Brunswick.  This support allows ORS to provide assistance to our faculty leading and participating in research.
