The Office of Research Services provides support for externally and internally funded research led by Royal Roads University core faculty, post-doctoral nominees and Vanier Scholars.
We support the development and submission of grant applications. We also handle institutional approvals for grants and tracking applications.
When grant applications are funded, we assist with developing contracts, hiring, financial monitoring and reporting associated with the award.
How we can help
If you're a researcher we can assist with the following services:
- editing and reviewing your proposal
- reviewing contracts
- managing relationships with funders
- financial planning
- managing intellectual property
- considering equity, diversity and inclusion in research
The Office of Research Ethics supports the administration of the ethics review process for research involving human participants at Royal Roads University.
If you're a student, or faculty or staff member and your research involves human participants, you'll need to request a review by the Research Ethics Board. Our staff will help coordinate the review and approval process.
