The Government of Canada has released its summary report on a recent Tri-Council initiative to strengthen science in Canada. The report details the findings of the Canadian Research Coordinating Committee’s consultations with students, scholars, and scientists that focused on three priorities: a new tri-agency fund for international, interdisciplinary, fast-breaking, high-risk research; strengthening equity, diversity and inclusion in Canadian research; and improving support for early career researchers. A release explains that respondents focused on how the Tri-Council should define “diversity” and “research excellence.” Respondents also agreed that the agencies should boost funding for early career researchers, take a researcher’s career stage into account during reviews, and implement improved instruments to track career progression.
