Event description

Description

Please join us on Thursday, August 17th for an evening of socializing and science advocacy!

As part of the Summer for Science and Evidence for Democracy, we are organizing a pub night and informal discussion around the Naylor Report - the recent Canadian Fundamental Science review set out to redressing funding imbalances, focusing funding on researcher driven initiatives rather than the priority driven model of previous years, and coordinating boards to provide oversight and guidance across the Tri-Councils and CFI.

We will start the night off with a brief introduction to the key points of the Naylor Report, followed by an informal discussion and brainstorming session on how to prioritize its recommendations and take action. We hope to bring together a diverse range of science policy advocates, both to build the community in a casual environment and to come up with some long-term goals.

Evidence for Democracy (E4D) is the leading fact-driven, non-partisan, not-for-profit organization promoting the transparent use of evidence in government decision-making in Canada. Through research, education and issue campaigns, we engage and empower the science community while cultivating public and political demand for evidence-based decision-making.

The pub night is free, but please RSVP as we’ll be buying some appetizers and have some door prizes! We’d also love to hear your thoughts on what we should focus our discussion on, and would appreciate if you can take 5 minutes to fill out our survey:
