Guide to the Research Planning,
Design and Approval Processes
in the Metropolis Centres of Excellence
This document maps out each of the Metropolis Centre of Excellences
research planning, design and approval processes. It also identifies the relevant
committees and individuals involved at each stage. The purpose of the document is i) to
provide Metropolis Project stakeholders with a better understanding of these processes and
ii) to identify the key players at each Centre. With a table for each Centre, Research
Pathways describes the various stages through which a research project passes before
becoming one of Metropolis funded research projects. These descriptions should
highlight the significant differences in the organization of research activities among the
four Centres of Excellence.
Turning to the organization of the document, there are four
sections, one for each Centre of Excellence, which describe
the research planning, design and approval processes.
In addition a number of appendices complement the report
by providing lists of members for each of the Centres
committees. Research Pathways will be updated regularly
to reflect changes to the Centres organization around
research planning as they are implemented.
The committees and other bodies mentioned below are described solely as
per their role in the research, planning, design and approval processes. As a result, the
text will not reflect their complete mandate. Further information on the Metropolis
Centres of Excellence is available from the Centres directly or on their respective web
sites. At the end of each section one can find the Centres web addresses. Access to
these is also available through the Metropolis National site at http://www.canada.metropolis.net.
In addition, each Centre produced a Mid-Term Review Report in April 1999. These
documents are rich in information about Centre organization and research activities. All
the Centres have posted their reports on their web site.
