National Research Council of Canada’s new approach for scientific facility investment and research workplace renewal

To renew research workplace inventories, address gaps in research facility investment, and maximize the impact of funding, the National Research Council of Canada conducted an extensive Scientific Facility review and adopted new criteria and management structures for analyzing project proposals, as well as manage project execution. Alexander Nitsche identifies key lessons learned from the NRC’s last research facility investment push, the challenges encountered, and initial results. He illustrates the early impacts stemming from development of the Office of Facilities Renewal Management, and the research facility and program targets that projects will need to meet to be funded going forward.
