The College of New Caledonia supports applied research which is a process of discovering, interpreting, applying, and disseminating new knowledge and is directed towards the enhancement and support of CNC's programs, services, and learning environment.

The IARG is primarily a CNC employee (faculty, operational staff, and administration) development opportunity that provides employees with small grants, up to $10,000.00 to fund applied research. The objectives of the IARG are to:

  • Provide opportunities and support for new applied researchers
  • Assist applied researcher(s) who wish to reach national and international levels of recognition
  • Provide support for small projects, or pilot projects that are likely to form the basis for a larger external funding proposal.
  • Support team-applied research especially that involving an experienced applied researcher with several less experienced applied researchers
  • Promote the creation of Applied Research Clusters
  • Support the participation of students in applied research activities.
