WIN: Program established to fund indirect costs of research

Indirect costs of research are expenses that cannot be directly attributed to a specific research project, but that are nonetheless required to conduct research. Examples include the cost of administering and managing research, powering library computer networks, renovating laboratories, and conducting basic maintenance.

In its 2001 Pre-Budget Submission, CASA called for further investments in the indirect costs of research in order to strengthen Canada’s research and the quality of its post-secondary education. The “Indirect Costs Program” was established in 2003, and it continues to exist today as the “Research Support Fund.” Funding currently totals $342 million per year across the three Tri-Council Agencies.
