These new reporting mechanisms will allow Canadians to more easily follow our Council’s progress towards delivering on our priorities, which were outlined in the Prime Minister's mandate letters to us.
It is our pleasure to present the I am pleased to submit for tabling in Parliament, the 2016-17 Report on Plans and Priorities for the National Research Council of Canada (NRC).
To support leading-edge concepts for higher risk, higher impact R&D projects, a new ideation fund has also been launched.
Moving forward, effective marketing and collaboration with partners through vehicles such as [Innoventures Canada (ICAN), and EUREKA, will be key to raising visibility of NRC capabilities, both nationally and internationally, as a leading RTO.
This 2016-17 Report on Plans and Priorities of the National Research Council of Canada provides information on how the Council will support the Government on achieving our agenda in the coming year and we are fully confident that the National Research Council of Canada is prepared to successfully support us and work with our partners inside and outside government to deliver for Canadians.
