The Research Advisory Committee (RAC) is an advisory committee to Research Nova Scotia. The RAC is a forum for parties to provide guidance to Research Nova Scotia’s direction and organizational planning and help to ensure the research ecosystem and its related partners and sectors have opportunity for alignment with provincial priorities.
The RAC is responsible for providing advice and recommendations on:
- strategy development;
- program development;
- funding of research, including alignment of match funding requests to provincial priorities, and alternate/additional sources of funding from within departments and partners.
The RAC provides advice to the CEO and, when appropriate, to the Board of Directors on funding and programs considerations.
