Research Operations

Research & Innovation Advancement (RIA) works in partnership with researchers to fulfil their facilities, financial and HR needs. Our experienced teams have assembled some of your frequently asked questions in the PDFs linked below; we recommend you review them and bookmark this link for future reference.

Note: Some of the links in the FAQ documents require an IWK login in order to access.

Ask The Experts form

The Ask The Experts submission form has been developed to promote more productive collaboration between RIA and the IWK researcher community. This tool allows researchers to ask questions, make suggestions or propose ideas related to your research activities at the IWK. Your questions and comments will be routed to the appropriate team for response, and we will also catalogue your questions in each team’s FAQ documents below. Common themes or concerns will also assist us in the development of standard operating process documents to provide future guidance.
