Collaborative Research

UBC researchers collaborate extensively with industry, government and non-profit partners.

In 2016/17, UBC and its affiliated hospitals were involved in 1,326 research projects with industry partners and 1,177 research projects (not including grants) with government and non-profit partners.

These collaborations take many forms: they might address a short-term specific goal, or support a longer-term research project across a broad field of study.

Our University-Industry Liaison Office works with researchers and their partners to create the best type of agreement for each project.
