Answering the big questions

Cape Breton University researchers are addressing important issues in scholarly discourses and debate, as well as problems that concern the general public. The research undertaken at CBU is making a difference—to academics, students, and to the community. The projects CBU researchers participate in are original, world-class and respected among other scholars and the public.

Cape Breton University’s Strategic Research, Innovation and Commercialization Plan identifies four research priorities that leverage CBU’s existing and emerging strengths:

  • Sustainability and Community Development
  • Cultural and Ecological Heritage
  • Fundamental Knowledge and Innovation,
  • and Social and Political Processes and Change

The Office of Research and Graduate Studies (ORGS) is here to assist CBU’s researchers, partners, and funding agencies in procuring and administering project funding. The ORGS team also promotes the research activities and achievements of researchers. We act as a facilitating conduit between our researchers and private and public, regional, national and international funding agencies

Supporting your work

The ORGS team is here to help navigate the research process from beginning to end. From idea creation to project implementation, the team can help determine what the best next steps are for each project and exactly how to go about them.
