Organized by: The National Alliance of Provincial Health Research Organizations

It has been said that the greatest purpose of scientific inquiry is in its potential, and therefore unpredictable, contribution to the benefit of all people. Various approaches have been at play to enable cross-sectoral decisions, collaborations, investments, and networking that aim to harness that potential and increase the likelihood of moving the value of research towards innovations with broad organizational and societal scope and benefit. To make these approaches effective, on the one hand, decision makers need to understand the ins and outs of the autonomous research process and how best to enable it over the entire timeline from discovery to impact. On the other hand, decision makers can also put challenges to the research community to stimulate research, collaborations, and innovation activities in areas where there are known knowledge gaps.

Policy and science have and have to continue to interact on various levels. Our panel will present pan Canadian perspectives on how this process occurs to establish cross sectoral culture, to identify and respond to regional and local needs, and to facilitate effective dialogue.
