The Fundamental Science Review, also known as the Naylor Report, was published in April 2017. The report set out 35 recommendations as part of a plan to restore and strengthen the fundamental research funding ecosystem in Canada. These include actions to increase federal funding for research, improve coordination among funding agencies, and promote diversity.
The Science & Public Exchange, a non-profit student advocacy group based in Montreal, launched a campaign, #Students4theReport, to support the Naylor report and fundamental research funding, and have written an open letter on the student perspective.
