Allow Colleges to Access the Full Suite of Research Funds

Question:How can colleges play a larger role in the innovation ecosystem?
on 09/04/2016







To make college applied research sustainable and to take it to the next level, colleges should be given greater access to grants programs that support the continuum of the research enterprise. In particular, student targeted awards such as undergraduate research and post-graduate research awards/fellowships are critical to support the next generation of applied research experts and there are currently no such supports for the majority of college programs.

Other Tri-Council programs and prizes that exclude colleges include the innovation challenge awards, Chairs for Women in Science, Canada Research Chairs, among others. Enhanced access to this full range of research supports for research intensive colleges would unleash substantial untapped capacity in Canada’s world renowned college system.
