In Budget 2007 the CFI was awarded $510M to hold another major competition between now and 2010. As has been the practice of the CFI, we have initiated a process to refresh our programs and procedures to assure that they are in harmony with the most pressing needs of the science community.
Over the next few months we will be undertaking this consultation process to ensure that the new funds will be spent effectively and efficiently, in the best interests of research and research institutions.
We encourage you to read this document and to provide your input in a way that represents a consensus of your institution’s opinion and needs. The results of the consultation will influence the next Call for Proposals. We intend to circulate a draft Call for Proposals in the fall, with a final version available by late fall.
Please submit your comments through your usual institutional liaison.
