Do you have a research idea or question? We can help!

U-Links Centre for Community-Based Research is currently seeking project proposals from community agencies for the winter 2020-21 academic term.
Environmental research projects on the topics of climate change, energy policy, community resource management, sustainable waste management and biomonitoring are a particular focus.
Since 1999, U-Links has facilitated hundreds of action-oriented research projects in Haliburton County that foster collaboration and innovation between community organizations and Trent University, and more recently, with Fleming College.
In order to work with U-Links you don’t need to have a background in research, simply an objective that you feel could be aided with the collection of information (i.e. surveys, literature reviews, community sources etc.). When you reach out to us to discuss your idea about a potential project, one of our U-Links team members will set up a phone call or meeting to help you develop your idea into a project proposal.
We are asking that if you have any project ideas or topics under consideration for the winter academic term that you forward them on to us by the beginning of December so they can be developed and ready for Trent and Fleming faculty to consider for their winter and spring courses. The earlier, the better so that we can take the time to develop a proposal that best suits your needs and start the necessary discussions with our faculty and student contacts.
We look forward to hearing from you! For more information and to see examples of our previous and available research projects please visit
