Industry and Partnership Services (IPS) is a unit of the Office of the Vice-President (Research and International) (OVPRI). We facilitate and manage collaboration between the University’s researchers and various partners, including companies, government departments, other universities, and community partners. IPS seeks to assist Carleton researchers and external organizations with all aspects of developing effective research relationships, with the goal of strengthening University research programs and helping external partners to meet their research and development needs.
