According to the @OpenGovCan data, Discovery programs @NSERC_CRSNG increased in budget by 16% between 2013 and 2016. 2/
#NSERC leadership was notified of significant gaps in funding for #math and #stats #research by the math/stats Liaison Committee, by Institute Directors, and (publicly) by @NGhoussoub in May. nghoussoub.com/2018/05/09/fet… 3/
A substantive response addressing the funding discrepancies for EG1508 has not yet been provided by NSERC. 4/
#Budget2018 announced significant new funding to support unfettered #research in Canada. These investments, driven by leadership from @KirstyDuncanMP and @ChiefSciCan following the Naylor Report, present an historical opportunity for 🇨🇦. How will the new funds be released? 5/
The opportunity to capitalize on the #Budget2018 investments will be missed if the calcified approach used by NSERC for the 2014 and 2016 increases is repeated. 6/
