The role of academic research in the development of highly qualified personnel hosted by Dr. Art McDonald and Dr. Daniel Woolf

The Fundamental Science Review demonstrated that Canada’s research competitiveness has been eroded by lack of support for individual researchers, and for Higher Education Research and Development there has been a decline in the proportion of federally derived funding.
