Posted by Jaq-Lin Larder on November 21, 2022 in Announcements

The Canada Research Coordinating Committee is pleased to share its Progress Report 2021-22, Moving Forward.

The report highlights initiatives taken by the Canada Research Coordinating Committee (CRCC) member organizations to help sustain Canada’s research enterprise through the second year of the global pandemic and build a strong, more equitable, connected and innovative research community.

Together, they advanced work on federal research priorities by: 

  • increasing engagement in interdisciplinary, international, high-risk/high-reward, rapid-response research;
  • positioning Canada as a valuable partner in global research and innovation;
  • fostering Indigenous self-determination, leadership and capacity in research and training;
  • strengthening equity, diversity and inclusion in research;
  • supporting early career researchers; and
  • supporting Canada’s research response to COVID-19.

In addition, they initiated the development of a tri-agency training strategy to create a more equitable, accessible and effective suite of scholarships and fellowships for the next generation of research leaders.
