Since its beginnings, the Universidad de La Frontera has promoted research as one of its areas of development. To achieve this, in 1981 it created the Office of Research, and in 1985 the Office of Training and Graduate Studies, both units under the Academic Vice-Rectorate. The International Cooperation Office opened in 1998, which to this day exists to promote, strengthen and expand the university’s international affiliations.

Later in 2006, and in accordance with the competencies conferred by Article 16 of Decree with Force of Law (D.F.L.) 156 of 1981, the Vice-Rectorate of Research and Graduate Studies was created to provide the University with the ability to generate policies and instruments that could focus resources on existing or emerging areas of excellence linked to research and graduate teaching and which – where pertinent or feasible – have national and international impact through innovation and technology transfer. The first Vice-Rector of Research and Graduate Studies was Dr. Raúl Sánchez.

In addition to this new unit, the Office of Graduate Studies and the Office of Innovation and Technology Transfer were created.

The Office of Graduate Studies has positioned the University as a national leader in contributing high-quality human capital; while the Office of Innovation and Technology Transfer has disseminated and enhanced the relationship between research activity and social environment, facilitating the transfer of ventures associated with results generated by the institution's scientific community to the region and the country.

Administratively, the University’s 6 Interdisciplinary Institutes and 2 Science-Technology Nuclei depend on this Vice-Rectorate: BIOREN-UFRO and Social Sciences.
