The University of Winnipeg’s Research Office and Faculty of Graduate Studies have collaborated to host the 2023 UWinnipeg Research Week from Wednesday, March 1 to Friday, March 3.
Research Week will work to bolster and spotlight innovative and cutting-edge research at our institution, bringing together funders, industry partners, and research programs to interact with the entire University community.

“Research Week is shaping up to be an amazing showcase of research at The University of Winnipeg,” said Lauren Bosc, Organizer and Lead Program Officer at the Research Office. “From undergraduates to faculty, our researchers, across disciplines, topics, and approaches, are leading and collaborating on cutting-edge projects and using Research Week as a way to share their experiences and expertise.”
Over the course of three days, there will be free events across campus for University researchers to connect with each other, students, potential partners, and funders.
“I’m particularly excited about the participation of funders at local, provincial, and federal levels, including Research Manitoba, Mitacs, Prairies Economic Development Canada, NSERC, and SSHRC, who are going to be joining Research Week for a panel discussion on how to be competitive in today’s increasingly complex funding environment,” said Rachel Keijzer, Organizer and Program Officer at the Research Office. “This promises to be a rare opportunity for UWinnipeg researchers to hear directly from funders, and for funders to hear directly from researchers.”
Dr. Jaime Cidro, Associate Vice-President of Research and Innovation, says Research Week will be a great opportunity to highlight the incredible research UWinnipeg faculty members are participating in right now.
“As funding for research programs at The University of Winnipeg continues to grow at an incredible rate, it is more important than ever to create forums for faculty and students to share their work,” said Dr. Cidro. “Research Week will work to bolster and spotlight innovative and cutting-edge research at our institution, bringing together funders, industry partners, and research programs to interact with the entire University community.”
