Canada competes well in research globally

Canada is well-positioned internationally in both the output and impact of its science and technology but performs particularly well in six fields, says a new report by the Council of Canadian Academies. “These six fields stood out,” said Eliot Phillipson, former president of the Canada Foundation for Innovation, who chaired the 18-member expert panel that prepared the report.

The six fields, in alphabetical order, are: clinical medicine, historical studies, information and communication technologies (ICT), physics and astronomy, psychology and cognitive science, and visual and performing arts.
