EXECUTIVE SUMMARYThe purpose of this report was to analyze the performance of Ontario Research Fund-Early Research Award.The goal of the program is to improve Ontario’s ability to attractand retain the best and brightest research talent. The report presents the results of thisproject through various studies. The report starts with an overview of people enrollmentinto institutions concerning the sectors that they came from. These include the privatesector firms, publicly funded research institutions, Government or non-profit groups andothers.Later, this report presents a summary and analyses of the overall results collected overthe years since the inception of the program in 2006 to 2016 using the variables outlinedin the Program’s status report form found in Schedule D. Finally, the report presents itsfindings from the analyses of the data collected on several independent variables drawnfrom ERA data code file. These results lead to policy recommendations aimed atimproved service delivery. Based on the findings of this project, the research excellencewill be achieved, as good policies will be brought to light.A brief distribution and variation of knowledge, training skills and involvement of about35,827 individuals are presented in a vast period of more than 10 years. The researchreport highlights involvement of participants in Ontario Research Excellence programand its different factors & segmentation.
INTRODUCTIONThis program provides funding for researchers who started their academic research careerno more than 5 years ago and completed a first PhD, DVM, or MD no more than 10 yearsago. It tookinto account eligible interruptions.The early researcher awards program is adiscretionary and non-entitlement program that encourages applications from alldisciplines.Usually there arefunds from institutionsare used over a period of 5 years tofund eligible expenses for a research team of undergraduates, graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, research assistants, associates, and technicians.Where an institutionaleligibility to apply forERAfunding may be in question, such institutions must requestand receive confirmation of eligibility from the Ontario Research Fund Advisory Board.The numbers of elementary students, high school students, graduated students,individuals researchers and other people are connected with the project are visualizedduring the time span of 2006 to 2012.
