Office of the Vice-President (Research International)- OVPRI

Carleton has long been known as a university that promotes research excellence and connectedness, and enjoys partnerships around the globe. We are known as a leader in research that focuses both on tangible outcomes and the development of knowledge with longer-term impacts.

The Office of the Vice-President (Research and International) leads these efforts

Industry and Partnership Services

You should contact IPS as early as possible in the collaboration process. In general, it is important for IPS to review all materials that are submitted to sponsors, even as early as the Letter of Intent (LOI) stage, and to facilitate obtaining institutional signature(s) when applicable. Note that, per government contracting procedures, some proposals specify the resulting contract clauses. In these cases is particularly important for IPS to review proposals prior to submission as there will be no (or very limited) opportunity to negotiate legally binding terms and conditions.

Research Financial Services

What Research Financial Services does:

  • Aid in interpreting and ensuring compliance with funding agency regulations
  • Advise on and ensure compliance with University policies related to research
  • Advise on appropriate procedures for financial transactions
  • Issue invoices and financial reports
  • Open research funds

What is the process for opening a fund?

Once an agreement has been authorized by the Vice-President (Research and International) or his/her designate, Research Financial Services will assign a Fund Number and allocate responsibility for the fund to a Research Account Administrator. Please consult the Research Financial Services website to determine the appropriate Administrator for your Department / Centre.

What researchers need to know provides information for researchers and their delegates to effectively and efficiently manage funding sources.

The Office of Research Ethics

The Office of Research Ethics offers administrative support to the Carleton University’s Research Ethics Boards (CUREB), works with researchers to ensure their research projects respect and comply with all applicable policies and guidelines, including those of the Tri-Councils (CIHR, NSERC, SSHRC), specifically the Tri-Council Policy Statement on the Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans. On behalf of the REB’s the office manages the protocol life-cycle, including protocol submission, approval and monitoring for the research involving human participants at the university and its affiliates. All research involving humans conducted by faculty, staff or students at Carleton University must be approved by a CUREB.
