Knowledge Management at NRC
Since its establishment in 1916, the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) has played a number of roles for the Federal Government according to the priorities of the time. Research excellence has always been a primary focus. Until the 1980s, NRC’s research generally followed internally generated priorities and was seen as part of the `public good’. Research teams predominantly worked apart from industry although firms did come to NRC for expert advice and funding through the Industrial Research Assistance Program (IRAP).
