The latest data shows university only research and development (R&D) in Nova Scotia has fallen slightly from $182 million in 2011/12 to $173 million in 2014/15. The 2024 target is $360 million. This Canadian Association of University Business Officers (CAUBO) data, does not include R&D performed at the Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC). More information on NSCC R&D can be found in ‘Deep Dive’.

What this means
This data shows the dollar value of sponsored research and development occurring at Nova Scotia universities. It does not include sponsored research and development performed at Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC).
It should be noted, many funding programs from the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI) are cyclical. Although the John Evans Leaders Fund (JELF) awards smaller-scale research funding to individual researchers three times a year, all other programs are larger-scale and take place every two to three years. Special funding programs from CFI are also held periodically to meet specific demands. Therefore, longer terms trends in funding will show the fuller picture for this goal.
