AbstractThis report presents the results of the 2015-16 evaluation of the National Research Council (NRC) Aquatic and Crop Resource Development (ACRD) Portfolio. ACRD provides technical services, technology development support and credible scientific advice to help Canadian technology-based companies transform Canada’s bio-based resources into sustainable, high- value products. At the time of the evaluation, ACRD hosted four NRC programs: Canadian Wheat Improvement (CWI) Flagship; Algal Carbon Conversion (ACC) Flagship; Bio-Based Specialty Chemicals (BSC); and Natural Health Products (NHP). The NHP Program was terminated in the Fall 2015. This evaluation assessed the value-for-money of the ACRD Portfolio, including relevance, performance, and resource utilization. It focused on the three-year period since the Portfolio was created (2012-13 to 2014-15). Recent developments that have occurred since April 2015 were also taken into account, as appropriate and possible. The key findings for each evaluation issue have been summarized and are presented below, along with the recommendations and management responses.
