Research Manitoba

Member Since: 2024

Research Manitoba is Manitoba’s provincial research agency that promotes, supports, and coordinates the funding of research excellence in health, natural and social sciences, engineering, and the humanities in Manitoba. We cultivate local talent/workforce development of highly qualified personnel by investing in trainees and early career researchers and foster strategic partnerships to bolster innovation in the province. Beyond our funding programs, there are other ways in which Research Manitoba contributes to the research ecosystem. One major initiative is the Research Improvements Through Harmonization in Manitoba (RITHIM) program. RITHIM will streamline and harmonize health research ethics, privacy, and institutional impact reviews to create a more efficient and transparent process for health research approvals in Manitoba.
