Research Western

Funding

Cedric Briens Franco Berruti

 

In an increasingly competitive funding environment that rewards collaborative approaches to research, Research Western offers strong support for excellence in collaborative and interdisciplinary research.

Research is a global enterprise, and researchers are increasingly attracted to offers of better infrastructure, more advanced equipment, or more highly-qualified personnel elsewhere. Maintaining strong support for faculty research, Research Western's primary mandate, is vital. Our success in research will depend on our ability to succeed in the increasingly competitive arena of funding from granting councils and private sector sources. Given that university research is the primary driver of innovation in Canada, we cannot allow ourselves to fall behind.
