Support Programs to Advance Research Capacity (SPARC)

The SPARC Office provides expert strategic support to UBC researchers in all disciplines who seek funding for innovative research disciplines. The professional staff in SPARC help to develop research partnerships and build interdisciplinary, inter-institutional teams that may involve government, the private sector, (NGO's), and the community.

SPARC's services include meeting with Principal Investigators (PIs), Internal Review of grant applications, strategic workshops, and brokering team development and partnerships with government, industry and consumer groups. SPARC's unique programs are tailored to meet the needs of researchers and to respond to emerging mandates and priorities of external funding agencies.

SPARC assists researchers in all disciplines and at all UBC locations.
