How we support research

The Office of Research Services (ORS) provides both pre-award and post-award support services to faculty members, researchers and external partners. ORS seeks to support faculty members and researchers on both campuses in all stages of the research funding process.

How to partner with UNB

The Research and Innovation Partnerships (R&IP) group in ORS provides support for the development and transfer of technology and knowledge. R&IP facilitates research partnerships and provides access to those who wish to explore UNB's knowledge base and research capabilities. R&IP is guided by the idea that UNB has a role with industry and government to support a stronger, healthier and more innovative New Brunswick and Atlantic Canada.
