NSERC 2030: Discovery. Innovation. Inclusion.

Release of the What We Heard report

The What We Heard report summarizes the input received during a three-month consultation process framed around a series of twelve discussion papers. Diverse groups with interests related to NSERC’s mandate were consulted, including researchers, research trainees, university administrators, industry representatives, Indigenous leaders, and government officials.

The feedback was gathered through discussion groups, online consultations, targeted focus groups, and one-on-one meetings between NSERC’s President and stakeholders. Several organizations and institutions also provided comprehensive submissions, which are reflected in this report.

NSERC would like to thank everyone who took the time to provide valuable insight and thoughtful comments through this consultation process.
