Fossils of strange primordial predator found in Canada
The objective of the Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics CITA Support Program is to facilitate the effective access by Canadian academic researchers to major and unique national or international based in Canada thematic research resources in the field of theoretical astrophysics by financially assisting these resources to remain in a state of readiness for researchers to use. Collaborative and thematic resources are defined as institutes that promote and trigger national and international interactions within theoretical astrophysics and provide a place where researchers meet, collaborate and exchange ideas. These resources provide an environment that serves to accelerate research in theoretical astrophysics, as well as to develop partnerships and interactions with different disciplines, thus fostering interdisciplinary research. CITA grants assist national or international based in Canada thematic research resources in theoretical astrophysics to cover their operating and maintenance costs. The grants assist resources that have broad reach and provide significant value in advancing the state of knowledge in theoretical astrophysics and related interdisciplinary research. Supported resources must be used by researchers from different institutions across Canada. Each criterion lists the factors that will be considered.
CITA's mission is "to foster interaction within the Canadian theoretical Astrophysics community and to serve as an international center of excellence for theoretical studies in astrophysics. The concept of a nationally-supported institute for theoretical astrophysics dates back to discussions within the Canadian Astronomical Society in the early s. Martin  as the Acting Director and a visiting professor from Queen's University Richard Henriksen and a temporary administrative assistant. Today there are 7 faculty members two of which are Canada Research Chairs , two administrative staff, a Systems Manager and technical computing staff.
