Applying for a research grant or initiating a research partnership takes careful planning and requires a number of stages of approval. Research, Engagement, and Graduate Studies (REGS) is the office responsible for reviewing, approving, and managing all research-related funds at UFV.
In order to provide us with the time we need to complete these reviews and obtain these approvals, the following deadlines and processes must be observed. If you miss a deadline, we may not be able to approve your proposal for submission.
Initiating a research contract/partnership
Partnership agreements can take two weeks to several months to develop and arrange signatures, depending upon complexity, workload, terms, and responsiveness of the partner. Please notify us as early in the process as possible and leave ample time in your planning.
With both grants and contracts, once funding arrangements have been completed, we will review compliance details and create an account for you so that you can access your funds. We will then support you in using your funds and providing any necessary reports to the funder/partner.
