In November the CFI shared with the community a discussion paper called Conversation on the future of Research and Research Infrastructure in Canada: role of the Canada Foundation for Innovation.   With this paper, CFI invited the community to answer a number of questions related to trends that are likely to shape how they approach research, and state-of-the-art infrastructure, over the next ten to 20 years. CFI is embarking on a nationwide discussion with research institutions and key stakeholders. Your feedback will help them continue to be responsive to the evolving needs of the research community.
