Killam Prize winners discuss research in Canada
The video, produced by TheFutureEconomy, also features Jeff Dahn and Francoise Baylis of Dalhousie University for Killam Prize – Engineering and Killam Prize – Humanities respectively; and Carl E. James, York University, who won the Killam Prize – Social Sciences.
Yusuf had some strong observations about research in Canada, as well as global health, such as his comment, “for a rich country, Canada does not invest enough in research.” He also noted that:
“Advances do not carry passports. There has been thinking in some circles that research funded within Canada should primarily benefit Canadians.. that is too narrow a perspective. Ideas will come from all corners of the world, and our work in Canada should benefit people broadly. Right now, it does.”
All the panelists’ overall takeaway/call for action was that “the Canadian government must provide more avenues for long-term funding for research in order to capitalize on research talent and ensure Canadian researchers are producing the best solutions for complex issues globally.”
