PLANNING YOUR RESEARCH PROGRAM
The Grants Officers and Applied Research & Innovation Advisors at the OVPRI are available to provide assistance as you plan your program of research or begin preparing your application. Please refer to the OVPRI Staff Directory to determine the appropriate Officer/Advisor for each opportunity.
To help researchers establish their research programs, OVPRI actively communicates research funding opportunities through its mailing list, OVPRInet. This listserv also informs researchers about events happening at Ryerson on a variety of subjects, including grant writing, knowledge mobilization, how to form research partnerships, and much more.
To subscribe to OVPRInet, please send a blank email to firstname.lastname@example.org from your Ryerson e-mail address. If you have any issues with subscribing, please contact email@example.com for assistance.
Locating and securing research funding is increasingly competitive, as funding opportunities become more limited and the number of researchers vying for those dollars continues to grow. The searchable COS Pivot database can help you identify programs that are relevant to you. With COS Pivot, you can explore new avenues for funding, view funding opportunities uniquely matched to your scholar profile, collaborate with colleagues, and manage the results of the process to build a funding strategy that supports both your immediate and long-term funding needs.
