Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC)
NSERC has released its new strategic plan, NSERC 2020, which outlines five goals intended to foster the success of discovery and innovation in Canada:
- Help the next generation of researchers launch their independent careers.
- Build a science culture to improve awareness and understanding of science and engineering.
- Increase the diversity (populations, institutions, regions, sectors) and competitiveness of the research base.
- Strengthen the dynamic between discovery and innovation.
- Goglobal to increase Canadian participation in and access to international research.
NSERC thanks members of the community who provided input on this plan during consultations to help articulate a clear mission for NSERC: to be the focal point for discovery and innovation in the natural sciences and engineering in Canada.
