NOVEMBER 7 – 9, 2018

10th Canadian Science Policy Conference
Building Bridges Between Science, Policy and Society
Ottawa, Ontario

This year’s conference is happening at a very different time from the first one. Science Policy is not only on the radar, but is at the forefront of consideration for the main players within the field of scientific innovation. Science Policy has improved connections to the rest of society including the media and the political milieu. There is renewed vigour and focus in the development of new programs which promote the urgency and importance of evidence-based decision making
