The Office of the Vice-President (Research International)

Carleton University is located in Ottawa, Canada — the nation’s capital. This allows unique access for our researchers across many disciplines to such places as Canada’s national labs and museums, Library and Archives Canada, federal government departments, and of course, Parliament Hill.

Carleton has long been known as a university that promotes research excellence and connectedness, and enjoys partnerships around the globe. We are known as a leader in research that focuses both on tangible outcomes and the development of knowledge with longer-term impacts.

The Office of the Vice-President (Research and International) leads these efforts.
