Effective collaboration is key to making progress on the problems that face society and business.

Corporate Relations

At a place as large and complex as UBC, it can be hard for potential partners to find the research expertise they're looking for. If you're interested in partnering with UBC, but unclear where to start, contact:

Innovation Development Officers

The broad and diverse range of partner interests can also make it challenging for UBC researchers to find appropriate collaborators.  Innovation development officers help bridge this gap, connecting partners in industry, not-for-profit or community groups and UBC researchers.  With their sector-specific expertise, innovation development officers help to ensure that new knowledge being generated can turn into results with social and economic benefits.
