The CIC meets with Liberal Government.

On February 5, 2004 Steering Committee members of the Canadian Consortium for Research (CCR) were pleased to hear that the federal Liberal government remains committed to Canada's stated goal of becoming the world's fifth most research-intensive nation by 2010. It is estimated that up to 100,000 additional research scientists and engineers will be required.
