The world is shifting rapidly today and forcing people to change from the old ways of doing things. This is a likely combination of numerous concurrent factors, be it innovations in fields like artificial intelligence, changes in global geopolitics, the tightening of the economy, or the mighty challenge of addressing climate change. The world is in a constant flux which underlines the need for governments, industries, and research institutions to evolve for keeping up with these changes.
This year, the magazine’s timely focus is on “Science and Innovation in a Time of Transformation.” We at the CSPC Editorial Committee have collected diverse science-based opinions of Canadian leaders from the government, industry, and academia navigating these complex issues. We are also excited to celebrate 15 years of science policy advocacy for everyone at the Canadian Science Policy Center and so we have curated a set of varied experiences from our past and present volunteers.
We are thankful to our hardworking editorial team including the CSPC staff and the volunteers who thoughtfully reviewed the editorials and coordinated the editorial process, right from sending invitations to the authors to publishing the final version of the magazine. We especially thank the authors for taking the time to write their opinions and creating a vibrant magazine aligned with this year’s CPSC theme.
