Business meeting around large desk

The Faculty Research, Innovation and Impact Committee (FRIIC) is responsible for developing and approving Faculty Research Strategy and priorities.

Chaired by the Associate Dean, Research, Innovation and Impact, FRIIC reads papers from the Research Community and then decides to approve or recommend changes. 

You can access meeting dates, terms of reference, minutes, papers, document templates, structures and more on our dedicated Canvas hub.
