The concept of research excellence is dynamic. It evolves with society, technology, resources and research itself. It is fundamental to Canada’s granting agencies who engage continuously, in conversation with their research communities, in determining what excellence is, how to recognize it and how to inspire it.

On the Canada Research Coordinating Committee and within their communities, the agencies are exploring how best to recognize internationalization and interdisciplinarity; equity, diversity and inclusion; Indigenous knowledge and ethics; and a broader range of activities and outputs as elements of research excellence.

Join the agencies’ senior executives in discussing the future of research excellence.

L’excellence en recherche est une notion dynamique. Elle évolue avec la société, la technologie, les ressources et la recherche même. Elle est fondamentale pour les organismes subventionnaires du Canada qui s’entretiennent continuellement avec leurs communautés de chercheurs, pour déterminer ce qu’est l’excellence, comment la reconnaître et comment s’en inspirer.

Au sein du Comité de coordination de la recherche au Canada et dans leurs communautés, les organismes étudient les moyens optimaux de reconnaître l’internationalisation et l’interdisciplinarité, l’équité, la diversité et l’inclusion, les connaissances autochtones et l’éthique et un éventail plus large d’activités et d’extrants comme éléments d’excellence en recherche.

Joignez-vous à la haute direction des organismes pour discuter de l’avenir de l’excellence en recherche.
