The Research and Innovation Office (RiO) builds research capacity. Launched in 2009, RiO assists researchers in every stage of their careers to help expedite our Faculty’s research growth.
For the individual investigator, RiO’s services mean more time to devote to research. Investigators rely on research account support officers to balance research accounts and expense reports, co-ordinate and manage purchase orders and expense requisitions, and facilitate hiring and payroll for research personnel.
In addition, RiO co-ordinates initiatives to help FEAS researchers build connections with industry and granting agencies in each of the Faculty’s strategic research areas.
