Research Units

The University of Calgary’s Research portfolio involves several different units from across campus. With a focus on teamwork across these units, there is an ability to provide expertise to other areas at the university, students, the external community and research partners. This collaboration develops the framework for an enhanced research at the University of Calgary.
