Thank you. It's greatly appreciated.
Minister Duncan, first, I want to thank you for your commitment, passion and determination when it comes to science. It's extraordinary.
I've had the opportunity to meet with you several times with representatives of our research centres, both at the college and university levels. On a number of occasions, you and I have been told that regional research centres have difficulty accessing grants to continue their research. We've been told that these grants are mainly allocated to major research centres. However, some extraordinary research is also being conducted in the regions.
I'd like you to discuss potential measures to help our smaller regional college or university research centres access these funds.
