Things to know
The CSC made recommendations to NSERC in September on behalf of Canada’s chemists for how to restructure the Research Tools and Instruments (RTI) Grant Program after its funding was reduced by more than half during the last federal budget. The submission was based on the results of a survey conducted by the CSC and can be viewed at www.cheminst.ca/advocacy.
