Top 10 of 2010: Funding for Canadian Life Sciences
Counting down the top 10 posts of 2010, in 6th spot is a post pondering the adequacy of the 2010 financial budget for the Canadian life sciences industry. According to Jim Flaherty’s prediction at the time, the Canadian government will invest almost $1.9B in post-secondary education infrastructure, research, technology innovation and environmental protection as part of its $19B stimulus plan for 2010. The budget drew a mixed reaction from Canadian life scientists with some in favour of the budget while others described it as largely inadequate.
