Connect with NSERC’s President on a Vision for 2020

Tue. Apr. 28, 2015

NSERC’s President – Dr. B. Mario Pinto– will be in your community as part of his cross-country tour to get input on NSERC 2020.  He will be in your area on May 7, 2015.

The “Connect with NSERC’s President on a Vision for 2020” consultation sessions provide researchers, students, administrators and stakeholders an opportunity to learn more about our President and to give their views and feedback on NSERC 2020 Strategy Plan. These sessions also serve as a platform for the community to ask questions and seek more information from Dr. Pinto.

We would like your views on the following two questions:

NSERC’s vision is for Canada “to be a global leader in strengthening the discovery-innovation continuum for the societal and economic benefit of Canada.”

  1. Going forward, will the NSERC 2020 Strategy help the Canadian research community achieve this vision?
  2. How can we work together to ensure success?
