Annual Report

The Office of the Vice-Principal Research and Innovation (OVPRI) is pleased to share Synergy, our Annual Report for 2023. In it, you'll find evidence of the collaboration and partnerships taking place across UTM — the synergistic effects of leadership, faculty, staff, and students working together to support and empower research discovery and impact.

In our section Numbers, we provide information on funding, partnerships, publications, awards, and new initiatives. Meet the OVPRI team and get updates on our core facilities in Support. Finally, in Achievements, you'll learn more about UTM's new startup incubator, look back on our events and communication activities, and browse some of the top research stories that were published this past year.

Read the 2023 report to learn how we're supporting the exciting research happening across the UTM campus — and to see where we're headed in the year to come.

The OVPRI's 2023 Annual Report was co-authored by Stefanie Bernaudo, Raquel De Souza, Anastassia Pogoutse, Tanya Rohrmoser, Kate Steinmann, Rong Wu, and Payam Zahedi. Report design by Drew Lesiuczok, Graphic Designer, Office of Communications.
