Strategic Partnership Program

Research Manitoba’s Strategic Partnership Program aligns with provincial priority research areas and establishes partnerships with industry, the public sector, and philanthropic organizations to advance and translate Manitoba’s innovations into solutions that impact the health and well-being of Manitobans and enhance the economy of the province.

Partnerships are a critical component of maximizing Manitoba’s research potential and can range in nature from co-funding to collaboration and consultation. Here are some organizations and institutions that Research Manitoba has been proud to partner with.
