Canada Foundation for Innovation seeking input

The Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) helps Canada’s universities, colleges, research hospitals and non-profit research organizations to increase their capability to carry out high-quality research through investment in state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, retention of top talent, and training of the next generation of researchers. 

With new federal investment from the Government of Canada from Budget 2018, the CFI has proposed a conversation with the Canadian research community and key stakeholders on the future of research and research infrastructure in Canada and the CFI’s role in supporting institutions to sustain and enhance their research capacity.

More information can be found in the discussion paper, Conversation on the future of research and research infrastructure in Canada: role of the Canada Foundation for Innovation

CFI staff will meet with as many stakeholders as possible through a series of meetings across the country and a few webinars. In addition, they invite institutions to submit written comments by Friday, Dec. 14, to conversation@innovation.ca. Queen’s encourages its faculty, staff and students to engage in the discussion.  Comments at Queen’s will be accepted by the Associate Vice-Principal (Research) Kent Novakowski until Monday, Dec. 10. Please direct emails to Kelly Blair-Matuk, Associate Director, Office of the Vice-Principal (Research).
