For Faculty

If you are a Fleming faculty member interested in conducting research, the Office of Applied Research is the single point of contact to help you get started. We will support you with identifying funding sources, submitting funding proposals, learning about research ethics, finding an industry partner, as well as the many other facets of research, including publishing your results.


We will help you with the following:

Identify research funding sources

There are many funding sources available to you to support your research. Some of the typical college research funding sources available are:

Funder Program Funds Available
CONII Proof of Principle Up to $30,000
NSERC Applied Research Development Up to $150,000
OCE Connections Up to $3,500
OCE Technical Problem Solving Up to $25,000

There are also a variety of provincial funding grants available.

Contact us so that we can help support your proposal and perhaps find additional funding for you. If you've already secured funding, let us know so that we can help administer your grant funds.

Develop research proposals

Over the past five years, our research office staff have secured over $8M in research funding and are experts in knowing what funders are looking for in a research proposal. We can help you simplify the process, develop research budgets, and review and edit proposals to ensure you submit the best proposal possible.

Our staff regularly attends workshops and conferences to learn about upcoming funding opportunities and are always aware of what funding is available for specific types of research.

Research Ethics Review

We can help you submit an application that meets the requirements of the Tri-Council Policy Statement on Ethical Conduct for Research Involving Humans. Please see Research Ethics for further details.

Collaborate with an industry partner

The Industry Innovation Office - a division of the Office of Applied Research - can help you identify potential industry partners and foster an existing partnership. Contact us to learn more: research@flemingcollege.ca

Market and publish your research

Fleming's Office of Applied Research will happily publish your research activity/project in our Annual Research at Fleming magazine, complete with your bio, photos, details of student involvement, and research results. We will also provide guidance and assistance in pursuing other publication opportunities.
