RNS and Forestry Innovation Transition Trust investing $5.38 million to deliver a 3-Year Forestry Research Program.

Research Nova Scotia is partnering with the Forestry Innovation Transition Trust (FITT) to deliver a three-year forestry research program. This program will work to harness the creativity and expertise of Canada’s research community to support Nova Scotia’s transition to an ecological forestry model. The research program builds on Research Nova Scotia’s forestry research agenda work in 2021, which identified the knowledge gaps and opportunities facing the forestry sector as it adapts to a changing climate and transitions for the future.

Working Together
Over the last couple of years, RNS has pursued a mission-oriented research strategy to tackle big, complex challenges in Nova Scotia. This strategy starts with what we want to accomplish and builds a research agenda and coalition of partners to help achieve these goals. By focusing on the goal, we can support many different types of ideas all seeking to find common ground: science and social science, fundamental and applied research can each play a role.
As a province, we face many grand challenges; equally, we are rich in resources, assets and expertise that can grab hold of opportunities. But we cannot do it alone: we need creative and collaborative partners, researchers, and uptake organizations who are willing to work together to find solutions.

Have an idea about how we could work together to support achieving one or more of our missions? Contact us
