Research and Industry Office

Emily Carr's Research and Industry Office (RIO) provides service and support for Emily Carr researchers, research units and organizations looking to partner with us. 

A key focus for the RIO is repositioning Emily Carr in the eyes of the community and internationally, in particular showcasing the changing role of the applied arts and today's technically sophisticated creators. Emily Carr will continue to open its doors to national industry-based events and to bring leading professional talent to campus for knowledge exchange.

Companies are seeking world-class talent in visual arts, media arts and design. Through our powerful network of corporate and non-profit alliances, Emily Carr is well positioned to craft collaborative industry-academic projects with lasting impact in the arts and technology.
