At the Canadian Consortium for Research meeting today w/ @MitacsCanada #CSPF and @NSERC_CRSNG colleagues, where @VB_Lisa opens by discussing #SupportTheReport efforts, asking how can we foster next steps for fundamental research and the #NextGenCanSci in Canada?

#scipol #thread
James Compton, prev prez @CAUT_ACPPU shows that there was a massive increase in student population, but this has slowed over the last 3 years. It would have slowed more, were it not for international students. Yet, #PSE funding from fed has been flat, has decreased at prov level
... Tuition has also increased over time. Faculty wages are not the culprit though, the % #PSE expenditures on wages has diminished over time. There is also more reliance on contract staff ➑️ and academic staff are not being renewed

#RM_Ott19 last panel @research_money on whole-of-govt initiatives to support #innovation. Moderated by @ChristineTrautt @CollegeCan, w/ Rob Wright ADM of @PSPC_SPAC, Wayne Moore @DFO_MPO, @NancyHamzawi ADM @environmentca, Andrea Johnston @ISED_CA, Gilles Saindon @AAFC_Canada
#RM_Ott19 RW says @PSPC_SPAC is looking beyond the usual vertical approach of governments, taking a more partnership view to drive success. WM @DFO_Science adds that bar has been set high for collab across departments, to get other ministers' / ADM's input and advice
#RM_Ott19 AJ @ISED_CA likes the "partnership" view, which aligns well with innovation portfolio of ISED. The federal family can be engaged in partnerships in one swoop (e.g. in Clean Growth Hub) rather than forcing external partners to reach out to depts separately

#RM_Ott19 @research_money next panel on Using the Full Spice Rack of talent and skills, w/ @BenoitTessier1 @ISED_CA, @rhonda_barnet of AVIT manufacturing, Elisha Ram @Labour_ESDC and @ajtibando @paletteskills
BT: there's a blame game on #skills ➑️ everyone points to someone else for leadership and responsibility for bringing skills to the next gen.

Q: if the 3 panelists are marooned an island, what skills do they need?

RB says govt and academia are limited help, so she will get people from her company to interact with young people and set up a robotics competition on the island. Also #WIL and active mentorship.

#RM_Ott19 @research_money next panel is on policy and #EDI w/ @kelly_mcgahey of @HireImmOttawa, @BerubeDo @SSHRC_CRSH, Jane Ngobia @sheridancollege, and Mahadeo Sukhai @CNIB
Employers are worried about resistance to #EDI within their organizations, incl white nationalism and resistance to immigrants - @kelly_mcgahey #RM_Ott19
#RM_Ott19 @BerubeDo @SSHRC_CRSH describes case study of complaints against Canada Research Chairs, which were not equitably distributed. This has inspired #EDI initiatives forcing insitutions to meet set targets to submit CRCs. This greatly improved diversity in nominations

@theNASciences comes from #Casablanca in #Morocco and moved to @UMich for a #PhD on interaction of Mars & Venus atmosphere and solar winds. However, she had a crisis and wanted to give back to her community, and dove into #scipol, #ethics, #economics
She went on to do a Christine Mirzayan S&T fellowship via @aaas, one of the few options available to #international applicants (cc @IWS_Network). Wanting to engage #ECR, she applied for a position @theNASciences, got in, and never looked back #NSPNsymposium18
She now promotes #international development, security, and cooperation with @theNASciences, through #Science #technology and #innovation.

@theNASciences β‰  @NSF! The National academy is independent from govt and provides #scienceadvice and #evidence for #scipol

... and a public which asks their representatives to value #evidence will be the strongest driver of long-term #scienceadvice mechanisms.

Jeff Reading @SPH_Iloilo adds long-term funding to #scienceadvice mechanisms would also be an important step if we want long-term thinking
The workshop starts now ➑️ what are top 3 critical issues or structural themes in #Scienceadvice that an @INGSciAdvice presence in North America could address? #INGSA_NA18
And we're back after the interactive workshop, now discussing how to leverage the @INGSciAdvice network in #NorthAmerica context #INGSA_NA18, and what we can learn from other chapters
