The University's commitment to excellence in research and innovation drives the strategic priorities of the Office of Research Services (ORS). Our staff members recognize that supporting and communicating the intellectual, creative and entrepreneurial directions of our faculty researchers and students provide the prime focus for our programs and activities.
ORS has been established to assist faculty and staff researchers in enhancing their research activities with the funding agencies, government, business and industry.
Our support team includes specialists in contract management, technology and knowledge transfer, ethics, animal care, hazardous materials, communications and financial accountability, together offering a high level of service to faculty and staff.
Our Responsibilities:

• our Research Officers, Technology Transfer Officer, and Legal Counsel support pre- and post-award grant and contract development and management.

• we manage responsible conduct of research and compliance with regulatory and legislative requirements, including human research ethics, animal care and use, and nuclear, chemical and biohazard safety

• we promote and communicate Brock's research achievements through internal and external channels

We endeavour to support and promote the research and creative activity of our faculty members, graduate and undergraduate students and staff, from idea to innovation to marketplace/community.

Research Officers

ORS is here to promote and facilitate the process of growing a vibrant research environment at Brock. The cornerstone of the structure is the team of RESEARCH OFFICERS who co-ordinate support services for the preparation and submission of grants and contracts. As the first point of contact for faculty and staff with ORS, the Research Officer's role is to monitor the life of an opportunity from the proposal preparation stage through vetting procedures and approvals until the end of contract compliance.
