Office of Research and Innovation: Supporting your Research During the COVID-19 Outbreak

The University of Windsor’s Office of Research and Innovation Services continues to support Faculties and researchers over the duration of the COVID-19 outbreak. The ORIS team is available online, by email, and through Teams to answer your questions, review applications, help you navigate the pre- and post-award systems, and to meet important funding deadlines. For any new grants being submitted, we continue to require a completed ORIS form, which is now set up for digital signatures from all approvers.

Research Finance will also be continuing to provide support on-line in order to ensure the research activities that you are able to undertake are properly accounted for financially and that all required financial reporting to agencies is completed on a timely basis.   

The Office of the Vice President, Research and Innovation (VPRI) has provided a directory of information online. Faculties and researchers should review this information on a regular basis as information is updated frequently due to the ever changing COVID-19 situation. 

We are continuing to monitor communications from the funding agencies, especially the Tri-Council, whose response to the COVID-19 outbreak can be found online. As further information is received, we will be communicating it to the Research Community and information will also be updated on the VPRI COVID-19 Information website.

As usual, your first point of contact on any new project should be the Research Coordinator for your area, who will be working remotely and will be available by e-mail. Please note voicemails may not be immediately returned.
