What is ROMEO?

UFV ROMEO is a research administration tool that allows researchers and research administrators to work collaboratively to manage internal and external grant applications throughout the research project life cycle.

Use ROMEO to:

  • Notify the research office of grant or funding applications that you plan to submit. This step ensures that any institutional involvement required is met on time.
  • Apply for internal funding opportunities such as research option releases, scholarly activity releases, sabbaticals and the SSHRC Institutional Grants.
  • Apply for human ethics or animal care certification for your project.
  • Collaborate on applications with your research team and administrators.
  • Submit compliance related forms such as conflict of interest declarations.
  • Receive notifications and reminders regarding the status of your applications and required action such as grant progress reports.

"(Research has) been a really sweet way to optimize my time at school. Looking back, I’m so grateful that I did this. It has truly been a highlight to work under Shelley (Canning). She has been a wonderful mentor and has impacted me and my nursing practice immensely."
