Partnerships

UBC President Toope and City of Vancouver Mayor Robertson sign a memorandum of agreement as UBC scholars look on.

The more we work together, the larger the potential impact. Through partnerships with the private, public and NGO sectors, UBC is able to expand its expertise on sustainability and reach beyond campus. As a research institution, UBC is at the leading edge of innovation, merging teaching, research, inquiry and strategy to pioneer change.

Partnerships can do for the University what we cannot do alone:

  • Private sector partners can commercialize and take in to the marketplace the outcomes of our collaborative efforts;
  • Public sector partners can work with us around regulations and policies, then share findings with other communities;
  • NGO sector partners can help us with social license and community engagement issues, then take the lessons learned into the wider world.

Are you looking for a research partner to help develop a product, test a theory or create a new venture? Consider the advantages of UBC, which include access to our world-class researchers and top research facilities.
