Keeping the disciplines on the federal radar


May 25, 1988 - Networks of Centres of Excellence Program begun by tri-councils

The Federal Government announces the creation of National Networks of Centres of Excellence in May 1988, to be administered by the three granting councils, the Medical Research Council, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council, and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC). Both federations lobby to have social sciences and humanities included in the network. Through the network, SSHRC provides the Canadian Federation for the Humanities a grant in 1988 for a project on Applied Ethics.
