Infrastructure Database

UBC is home to advanced research facilities and equipment.

Infrastructure Database

The Institutional Program Office's Infrastructure Database serves as an inventory for CFI-funded infrastructure and allows researchers from UBC sites, other institutions, non-profits and industry to search for specific equipment currently available for use at UBC. The database is intended to be a tool to maximize the use of CFI-funded infrastructure, encourage sharing of research infrastructure amongst researchers, and facilitate collaborations. 

The database is an ongoing work-in-progress, and is accessible on Workday by searching "CFI Asset Report". Contact for assistance.
