Subj: LIST-SERVER for CARRF
The Canadian Association for Responsible Research
Funding (CARRF) is an informal group of (primarily)
Canadian university researchers seeking to reform elitarian,
discriminative and publicly unaccountable funding policies
of granting Councils, such as NSERC (Natural Sciences and
Engineering Research Council), MRC (Medical Research
Council), etc. Our goal is to promote an open discussion
of research funding mechanisms, practice of "peer review",
massive denial of opertaing grants to numerous active
and reputable researchers, etc - the discussion which we
believe is systematically sabotaged by the administration
of the Granting Councils.
We welcome participation of researchers at all
stages of their careers, i.e. faculty members (senior,
junior, tenured, untenured, 'emeritus', etc), research
associates, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students,
non-academic researchers, and all individuals who are,
by one reason or another, are interested in these issues,
Canadians and non-Canadians alike (we believe that the
researchers in many countries are facing similar problems).
We have established a LIST-SERVER to facilitate exchange
of information and viewpoints between people interested
