Organized by: Research Nova Scotia

This panel proposes a lively discussion on the roles of provincial and federal research agencies in setting priorities, coordinating funding and serving the needs of regional research ecosystems. Representatives from provincial research organizations and federal funding agencies will debate:
  • How national priorities align – and misalign – with provincial priorities
  • The incentive structure within the federal model of research funding
  • The asymmetrical effect on provinces of vastly different fiscal capacity within a single federal research support system
  • System adjustments that can improve the federal-provincial partnership and better support research that benefits all Canadians.
