Consultation: Canada Research Coordinating Committee

The consultation will focus on three priorities:

  1. creating a new tri-agency fund to support international, interdisciplinary, fast-breaking and high-risk research that generates new knowledge;
  2. strengthening equity, diversity and inclusion in research; and
  3. support for early career researchers.

Budget 2018 proposed to invest more than $1.7 billion over five years to support researchers through Canada’s granting agencies and research institutes. This includes $275 million over five years to support the new Tri-Agency Research Fund. Stakeholders are invited to provide feedback on a draft funding model that the CRCC has developed to ensure we maximize the positive impact on academic research in Canada.

Consultation will be held in communities across Canada. Input from this process will inform the development of a call for proposals this fall for the Tri-Agency Research Fund. The online consultation is open to all Canadians until August 27, 2018.

The CRCC was created to improve the coordination efforts of Canada’s granting agencies—SSHRC, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research—as well as the Canada Foundation for Innovation.

Consultation: Tri-Agency Research Data Management Draft Policy

The three federal research funding agencies—the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) (the agencies)—have developed a draft Tri-Agency Research Data Management Policy, which aims to support Canadian research excellence by fostering sound digital data management and data stewardship practices.
