Report from the Global Young Academy (GYA)


Fundamental research: the foundation of innovation - The GYA has published a new report on “Restoring Canada’s Competitiveness in Fundamental Research: The View from the Bench”. The report by GYA members Julia Baum and Jeremy Kerr reveals that Canada’s support for fundamental research crumbled over the past decade, due to the previous government’s disregard for fundamental research. As a result, many accomplished researchers in Canada are now left completely unfunded and Canada’s future as global leader for innovation and discovery is at stake.
