Have you ever thought about what’s required to complete research? Not only do you need the main research materials, you also need a space in which to do your research, digital infrastructure like internet and computers, paid faculty to conduct the research, and various safety compliance measures. These are known as the indirect costs of research.
While Canada’s financial support for the indirect costs of research was falling behind other OECD countries, this new investment in the Research Support Fund should help us to catch up and support our talented researchers.
