Office of Research Security
Research Security or Safeguarding Research, is an actively evolving topic across Canadian universities. The University of Manitoba is actively working to ensure we continue to safeguard researchers and their work.
This site will be expanded over the coming months with resources for the University of Manitoba’s research community. Contact email@example.com with any questions.
The Vice-President (Research and International) Office is diligently working to integrate Research Security into our administrative and operational processes and to ease the administrative burden of our Research Community.
What is research security?
Research Security refers to the ability to identify possible risks to your work through unwanted access, interference, or theft and the measures that minimize these risk and protect the inputs, processes, and products that are party of scientific research and discovery.

Research Security at UM is funded by the Research Security Fund and is categorized as the fifth priority area of the IPGs. More information about the funds and how they are used can be found on the Research Support Fund webpage.
