Consultation on the new Canadian Research and Development Classification (CRDC) 

Members of the Queen's University research community are invited to share feedback on the draft research classification standard, tentatively titled the Canadian Research and Development Classification (CRDC) 2019. The new single research CRDC is a joint initiative of the federal granting agencies, including CIHR, NSERC, SSHRC, CFI, and Statistics Canada, and will already be familiar to researchers who participated in the recent New Frontiers in Research Fund - Exploration call. This shared standard will be used by the federal granting agencies and will align Canada with international research and development classification standards.

Please see below for details and a link to the online consultation (open until March 22, 2019).

Dear colleagues,
A national consultation to inform the development of the new Canadian Research and Development Classification (CRDC) was recently launched by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, the Canada Foundation for Innovation and Statistics Canada.
The CRDC will improve how research and development activities and investments are classified in Canada, and will allow greater harmonization, integration and coordination among Canada's granting agencies .
We invite you and the members of your organization to share your views through the online consultation, which is open until March 22, 2019.
We look forward to your feedback and t hank you in advance for sharing the consultation via your networks. Your input will be very important in helping to shape the final structure of the CRDC.
