An event hosted by the McGill Association of University Teachers (MAUT) at the Faculty Club from 8:30AM to 2PM on June 20th, 2017
As you know, the Naylor Report comes out strongly in favour of funding basic research through the tri-councils, SSHRC, NSERC and CIHR. However, a concerted effort is needed to see its recommendations implemented. Toward that end, we have organized a panel discussion broadly centered on three aims:
1) How do researchers engage federal politicians and ministries to see this report implemented?
2) How do we better engage the public to see the value of basic research?
3) What skillsets are needed for us to see aims 1 and 2 accomplished?
Panelists should plan to speak for 5 minutes and then we open the floor to discussion. The idea is to develop strategies to meet Aims 1-3. The session will be filmed and made available on YouTube.
Attendance is limited and must be confirmed by June 15th by registration only at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
