Faculty Research

Information for Researchers

Most full-time faculty at Emily Carr, and many sessional faculty members, are pursuing their own creative practices in art and design and in research projects, in addition to careers as educators and leaders. The Research + Industry Office (RIO) supports faculty in their research endeavours. Faculty can approach RIO for information relating to:

  • Funding Opportunities
  • Applying for grants
  • Grant writing support
  • Post-award management support

All researchers must be aware of Emily Carr's compliance policies regarding Ethics in Research and related procedures Responsible Conduct of Research, Procedures for Research Involving Humans and Conflict of interest

If you are new to research and don't know where to begin, you might start by checking possible collaborations within existing research areas and projects. Please come to one of our Research Conversations meetings to find out about fellow faculty's research projects. (Schedule of meetings to be confirmed)

Are you interested in finding out about research collaborations with external organizations? Industry partnerships can take different formats and the RIO can help you identify and create agreements for specific projects.

More information about research areas, centres, studios and labs, can be found in the Research page of our main website.
