Research Nova Scotia Update

As you may know, NSHRF has been busy preparing for the transition to Research Nova Scotia (RNS). The transition has been scheduled for completion by the end of this fiscal year, March 31, 2019. We’ve been working closely with government to ensure that support for the health research community is not interrupted during the changeover to RNS. It is our pleasure to inform you that all NSHRF programs and services will remain business as usual for the 2019/2020 fiscal year, under the new organization.

To clarify, this means the following NSHRF programs and services will continue during Research Nova Scotia’s first year of operation:

Funding competitions:

Establishment Grant
Development/Innovative Grant
Knowledge Sharing Support Award
Scotia ScholarsOM Award

Programs and Services:

NSHRF Business Unit
REAL Knowledge Program
REAL Evaluation Services
Peer Review Services
The Success Program 

These are exciting times for researchers in the province, as Nova Scotia begins its evolution into the next stage of research support. Rest assured that NSHRF is working hard to ensure a smooth transition.
