The Office of Collaborations and Partnerships (OCP) stems from a consolidation of units reporting to the Office of the Vice-President (Research). The Core Research Equipment and Instrument Training Network (CREAIT) and Major Research Partnerships (MRP) are divisions of the Office of Collaborations and Partnerships.

Institutional applications and reports to programs offered through the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI), the Canada Research Chairs (CRC), the Atlantic Innovation Fund (AIF), and the Research & Development Corporation (RDC) of Newfoundland and Labrador are administered through the Office of Collaborations and Partnerships; which serves as the institutional point of contact with CFI, the CRC secretariat and RDC.

MRP is responsible for financial and administrative support for Memorial University of Newfoundland's existing major, AIF-funded research projects and other new collaborative research projects.

The pan-university Core Research Equipment and Instrument Training Network (CREAIT) is designed to maximize the impact of Memorial University of Newfoundland's institutional investments in research through enhanced access to and utilization of major research equipment. CREAIT consists of eight interconnected satellites across the St. John's campus and is responsible for maintaining and operating thematic clusters of multi-user equipment.
