Types of Collaborations
Acadia engages with our local community in a variety of ways: community-engaged research projects & programs; research facility use; public policy analysis and development of community-based projects or business opportunities leading to local economic development.
Research projects can vary dramatically – from small research or consulting projects involving a faculty member or student, to collaborative projects involving Acadia faculty, students and multiple community and government stakeholders. Field placements & student internships often form part of these initiatives.
Research Facility Use
Acadia is home to a rich research environment that includes state-of-the-art equipment, labs and qualified technicians. See Acadia's Research Infrastructure Please contact us if you are interested in access to our facilities.
