Recognizing the central role that science plays in many aspects of Canadian society, the federal government has developed a vision to foster a culture of evidence-based policy- and decision-making. This new vision will lead to enhanced science outcomes for Canadians through greater collaboration and improved infrastructure that will benefit the wider Canadian science ecosystem. Areas of focus include strengthened equity and diversity in science, support for the next generation of scholars, scientists being equipped with the tools and resources they need to succeed, and active engagement in the rapidly evolving global science landscape.

The panel discussion will focus on how scientific research can address today’s emerging challenges through new collaboration, supported by innovative and world class science infrastructure. Members will highlight successes with respect to collaboration across jurisdictions to address important scientific questions, how the pace of discovery and innovation is shaping their workplaces and influencing the tools they need, and how they are keeping pace with transformative changes in the global scientific landscape.
