Partnership Prospectus: Science Meets Parliament

Make your organization a Champion of the Science Meets Parliament Program, the first in Canada



In celebration of the 10th conference, the CSPC in partnership with Chief Science Advisor of Canada, is proud to present a new, high-impact opportunity for researchers in Canada to develop skills and experience in science policy. Science Meets Parliament will bring scientists to Ottawa for one-on-one meetings with Members of Parliament and Senators to share their passion for research and innovation. Delegates will gain practical knowledge on the inner workings of political policymaking, broaden their professional networks to include influential members of the science and policy communities, and bring their experiences back to their home institutions. Delegates will also be invited to take part in the Canadian Science Policy Conference, occurring the same week, to extend the benefits of the program.


Investment impact:

CSPC endeavours to make Science Meets Parliament a major platform for raising the prominence of science policy in Canada. As a partner in our pilot year, the impact of your organization’s support and visibility can grow along with the program.

Science Meets Parliament is a national capacity builder working to strengthen connections between scientists and politicians.

Comments from CSPC 2017:

“The unique perspective. This conference brings together people from a diverse background like no other conference.”

“Diversity of attendees provides ample opportunity for discussion with a variety of valuable perspectives.”

“High-level discussions surrounding science and policy; Broad exposure to policy challenges faced by various industry sectors; and ability for scientists to speak directly to policy makers and government staff.”

“Networking (I met some of the most amazing people and was impressed that you were able to attract such high caliber people to the conference), sitting in on panel discussions where I knew nothing about the topic and taking away so much from it.”
