Canada Research Coordinating Committee
The Canada Research Coordinating Committee (CRCC) plays an important role in reinvigorating Canada's support for science to meet the current and future needs of the country's scientists, scholars and students.
The committee was created to improve the coordination efforts of Canada's granting agencies—the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research—as well as the Canada Foundation for Innovation.
The CRCC is mandated to achieve greater harmonization, integration and coordination of research-related programs and policies and to address issues of common concern to the granting agencies and the CFI.
CRCC members work together to strengthen Canada's ability to grow in the rapidly evolving global research landscape while focusing on key priority areas such as strengthening equity and diversity in research; increasing the capacity of Indigenous communities to conduct research and partner with the broader research community, and improving support for the next generation of scientists and scholars.
