20 janvier 2015 ‒ Saskatoon (Saskatchewan) ‒ Aujourd’hui, l’honorable Ed Holder, ministre d’État (Sciences et Technologie) a annoncé plus de 35 millions de dollars en investissements dans l’infrastructure de recherche des établissements postsecondaires du pays où les chercheurs tentent de repousser les frontières du savoir dans des domaines variés comme la prévention du cancer du sein, les sciences arctiques et les systèmes de drone intelligent.

Ce financement fédéral est versé par l’entremise du Fonds des leaders John-R.-Evans de la Fondation canadienne pour l’innovation (FCI), qui aide les universités à attirer et à retenir les meilleurs chercheurs du monde en leur procurant de l’infrastructure de recherche de pointe.

L’annonce a été faite à la University of SaskatchewanLynn Weber dirige une équipe de spécialistes en sciences biomédicales vétérinaires qui examine la santé cardiovasculaire des animaux domestiques. En utilisant des pois, des fèves et des lentilles cultivées en Saskatchewan, les résultats de ces travaux de recherche pourraient permettre aux producteurs de légumineuses à graines de la Saskatchewan de se positionner sur le marché mondial de la nourriture pour animaux domestiques, lesquels ont exporté pour trois milliards de dollars en 2014. En plus de la contribution octroyée au laboratoire de la docteure Lynn Weber, la University of Saskatchewan a aussi reçu du financement d’infrastructure en appui aux recherches menées dans les domaines des biocarburants, du cancer et de la surveillance et de la remise en valeur des cours d’eau.

Faits en bref

  • Le Fonds des leaders John-R.-Evans de la FCI verse 27 millions de dollars en financement d’infrastructure et d’outils à 37 universités du pays. Un montant additionnel de 8,1 millions de dollars sera octroyé pour couvrir une partie des coûts d’exploitation de l’infrastructure financée par la FCI sur ces campus.
  • Le premier ministre Stephen Harper a récemment concrétisé l'engagement du gouvernement à présenter une stratégie actualisée en matière de sciences, de technologie et d'innovation (STI). Cette stratégie constitue à la fois une vision et une feuille de route pour renforcer la position du Canada en tant que chef de file mondial dans la recherche scientifique, et permettre d'exploiter les innovations canadiennes les plus prometteuses qui créent des emplois, accroissent la prospérité et améliorent la qualité de vie des Canadiens.
  • Le Fonds des leaders John R. Evans de la FCI appuie les personnes, les connaissances et l’innovation, piliers de la stratégie fédérale, en offrant des outils et des infrastructures de recherche de calibre mondial pour former du personnel hautement qualifié et mener des recherches de pointe, lesquels sont utilisés par le secteur privé pour améliorer des produits, des processus et des technologies, et en développer de nouveaux.

« Dans notre stratégie actualisée en matière de sciences, de technologie et d'innovation, nous faisons des investissements sans précédent pour repousser les frontières du savoir, créer des emplois, construire la prospérité et améliorer la qualité de vie des Canadiens. Le Canada est devenu une destination prisée pour les chercheurs scientifiques de grand talent en partie grâce à notre soutien à l’infrastructure de calibre mondial des collèges et des universités, ce qui permet de former la prochaine génération de talents en recherche canadiens. »

Ed Holder
Ministre d’État (Sciences et Technologie)

“One of the key components to our government’s updated Science, Technology and Innovation Strategy is to to encourage and harness innovations resulting from academic-industry partnerships. Today’s announcement demonstrates how research conducted at the University of Saskatchewan is supporting exciting new market opportunities for Saskatchewan’s pulse growers, key to jobs and prosperity in our province.”

Kelly Block
Députée fédérale (Saskatoon-Rosetown-Biggar)

“When the country’s researchers have access to state-of-the-art tools and facilities, they can ask bold questions, find remarkable answers and apply them in new and often unexpected ways. Their discoveries and innovations further Canada’s reputation as a nation known for its research excellence.”

Gilles Patry
Président-directeur général, FCI

« Les nouveaux outils de recherche financés par la FCI permettent à nos chercheurs de collaborer avec le secteur privé ‒ notamment les Saskatchewan Pulse Growers ‒ afin de relever de façon novatrice des défis mondiaux réels et de bâtir des collectivités saines et prospères. De fait, ce projet vétérinaire s’appuie sur la qualité de la recherche à la University of Saskatchewan qui a pavé la voie à l’industrie canadienne de la culture des légumineuses à graines, évaluée à plusieurs milliards de dollars. »

Karen Chad
Vice-présidente, Recherche, University of Saskatchewan

« Avec le soutien de la FCI, nous nous doterons d’un nouvel appareil ultrasonique qui nous permettra d’obtenir une mesure détaillée et séquentielle de l’activité cellulaire de chiens et de chats. La réaction de ces cellules à une alimentation composée partiellement de légumineuses nous aidera à élaborer des solutions nutritives d’aliments pour animaux assurant leur santé et leur vitalité. »

Lynn Weber
Professeure agrégée, Western College of Veterinary Medicine, University of Saskatchewan
