  • Canada's Innovation Strategy: Peer Review and the Allocation of Federal Research Funds, June 2002
    Report of the Standing Committee on Industry, Science and Technology Report of the Standing Committee on Industry, Science and Technology. In its report, A Canadian Innovation Agenda for the Twenty-first Century1 released in June 2001, the Committee expressed some broad concerns about how research funds are allocated by the three federal research granting agencies (the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada or NSERC, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada or SSHRC, and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research or CIHR). Although generally supportive of the agencies’ work and accomplishments, it was concerned about how the agencies carry out their mandates and about the decision-making processes employed for funding research projects and programs. The Committee indicated that given the government’s commitment to double Canada’s annual investment in research and development (R&D) by 2010, a review of decision-making processes and selection criteria used by the granting agencies is important, before additional investments are made, to ensure that funds are being managed in the best possible way. This report is a result of that review
