The NSHRF is consulting with the health research community on the future of the Establishment Grants might best support the health research enterprise in Nova Scotia.
The NSHRF is currently considering how to support and sustain the Nova Scotia health research enterprise given the changing research environment nationally and our available resources. Specifically, we wish to consult the health research community on how best to use the resources currently devoted to the Research Program’s Establishment Grants.
Given the current challenges within the national and provincial health research environments, the NSHRF believes it is very important to engage with you and others as we consider potential changes and the potential impacts changes may have across the health research enterprise in Nova Scotia.
