The Canadian Science Policy Conference was held in Toronto on October 28-30. It was the brainchild of Dr. Mehrdad Hariri, a postdoctoral fellow from the McLaughlin-Rotman Centre for Global Health in Toronto and 19 other individuals, virtually all of whom were graduate students and postdocs, mostly from the health field. An ambitious endeavour, with 400 participants, its primary objective was to make a measured first step towards building a robust science policy network in Canada.
CAP was represented by our President Robert Mann, who was participating on a panel, and our Vice-President, Henry van Driel. Please see the attached document for their joint report.
On October 25th, Robert Mann’s comments were posted at themarknews.com as an article called Bridging the Gap, which can be accessed here: http://themarknews.com/articles/618-bridging-the-gap . The article has since been re-published in The Hill Times on November 16th (see attached document below).
