Opportunities for Red River College Polytechnic faculty and staff interested in pursuing applied research are posted as they become available.
Please contact us if you are interested in applying for any of these opportunities or with one you have identified yourself.

Do you think your research has commercial potential? If so, please read over the Invention Disclosure Form, and make an appointment to see us to discuss your invention.
You do not have to fill out the Invention Disclosure Form prior to meeting with Applied Research. However, you should be prepared to answer the questions, as they will be asked during your disclosure meeting.
