Adding insult to injury

April 21, 2009

Just back from a National Science Foundation (NSF) advisory panel meeting in Washington DC. The purpose was to assist  them in envisioning and structuring appropriate granting programs for the extra funds (an additional 50% in next year’s budget) the NSF is getting from the Obama administration to support scientific research. Good for them and good for science.

But Canadian scientists should be extremely proud of what they are accomplishing in a much less favorable playing field.
