#CSPC2018 now at the participatory panel on funding for trainees.
Most voted model for support for trainees is direct via scholarship and fellowships (rather than thru institutions or via grants), and 52% prefer higher value to 48% wanting more awards. #CSPC2018

These are some of many questions in @DSP_SPE survey πŸ“Ž sp-exchange.ca/events/survey/
Some great #NRSA programs over at @NIH ⬇️ #CSPC2018 (see stipend amounts in pix)

Got a seat right in the front at #CSPC2018 @sciencepolicy for the panel on #NextGenCanScience (science and the next generation) feat enablers of trainees getting involved in #scipol @ChiefSciCan @McGill_VPRI @katemoran Stacey Robinson and @DanWicklum
#CSPC2018 @ChiefSciCan mentions #Budget2018 reinvestments of 2.8B$ to create more collaborative infrastructure in govt labs and beyond. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to get things right and elevate Canada in science leadership πŸ™Œ
πŸ“£ All major equipment in federal labs will be part of a registry and be accessible to everyone ➑️ democratizing the infrastructure of #cdnsci - @ChiefSciCan #CSPC2018 @sciencepolicy

At the @CAPSACSP panel on post-docs w/ @Joe_S_Sparling @BerubeDo Rachel Fernandez, @krishnahegde3 @DrHaverfield #CSPC2018
#CSPC2018 @Joe_S_Sparling @CAPSACSP says you lose money for every year you train as a postdoc (on average). PhDs that go straight to the workforce are often more financially stable. Post-docs lose retirement income, forego wages (esp now they pay tax) despite high #talent
Due to unionization and internal funding, there are now more post-docs with employee status. This palliates some of those issues, but externally funded and govt post-docs are still behind esp since they are not employees, no benefits despite taxation - @Joe_S_Sparling #CSPC2018

Next panel on #nextgen of problem solvers and enabling #interdisciplinarity, bringing trainee voices to the table πŸ‘ #CSPC2018 @sciencepolicy
Ghose leads the #womeninscience Centre at @Laurier and works in physics and computer science ncl #quantum, and #interdisciplinary is just a big word to her. There is no choice to cross disciplines in her research, which also bridges into #SocialSciences #CSPC2018

#CSPC2018 luncheon session w/ @ChiefSciCan starting soon! #Thread here ⬇️

#scipol @sciencepolicy
#CSPC2018 @ChiefSciCan congratulates @MehrdadHariri and his team for the 10th anniversary of @sciencepolicy, and on the success of #SciParl2018 for facilitating great dialogue for #scipol and #cdnsci in Parliament πŸ™ŒπŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ
... Also thanks the #scipol community for being there and answering the call when they were needed.

Getting the @ChiefSciCan office together was a challenge like for #ECR just starting up a lab, and like #cdnsci she has build an excellent team

Panel 2, on granting agencies and #citizenscience w/ @mgfortin_rd @NSERC_CRSNG + Ted Hewitt @SSHRC_CRSH + Serge Marchand @FRQS1 + Louise Poissant @FRQSC + Michael Strong @CIHR_IRSC #CSPC2018
#CSPC2018 @mgfortin_rd says #citizenscience and participative science is incredibly important. This isn't only including public in research, it's engaging communities who have knowledge incl #indigenous traditional knowledge.
... Current project ongoing, is a northern community that wants to better document the status of their natural resources (air quality, water) and to analyze the impact of #climatechange & other human impacts on these. There is added value to including these communities. #CSPC2018

First panel, day 2 #CSPC2018 on the @MitacsCanada #cspf program and building skills / capacity at the #scipol interface.

@alejandroadem introduces the program, that is in its 3rd year, and is at federal level in #ottawa and prov at #BC
David Castle champions @MitacsCanada #CSPF program in #BC, and discusses the importance of capacity building of #scipol across levels of govt (fed + prov), and placing fellows in depts that can and will use their skills effectively, + help them to develop new ones. #CSPC2018

#CSPC2018 panel on #scienceadvice starts!

@DLEKirkwood chief scientist of @NRCan says issue is not do much making sure science is valued in govt (seems it is) but to ensure evidence is used in policy. Plus, policy is inherently quicker than science.

#scipol #canpoli #cdnsci
... The challenge for new science advisors and chief scientists is to ensure that the need for #EBDM in policy is understood across the department, across govt. #CSPC2018
#CSPC2018 Sarah Gallagher @csa_asc says building relationships btw scientists and policymakers (#scicomm skills helpful here!) is key

Next panel @sciencepolicy #CSPC2018 on international science and Canada, global agenda for 2030. Gordon McBean starts us off with background on international consortia and meetings on this important topic. Need to bring stakeholders together for a global program
#CSPC2018 @wwatsonwright @OceanFrontier stresses there is only one ocean, where distinct bodies are connected. If we treat them separately and let borders define policy, we limit the impact our policies can have

After a quick photo op with the @DSP_SPE #scipol #NextGenCanSci #dreamteam, I'm attending the #CSPC2018 panel @sciencepolicy on the social implications of emerging technologies w/ @ideas_idees @SocMedDr @emmeslin @Scienceadvice
Discussion questions for 2-way Q&A at the emerging technologies panel #cspc2018 ⬇️
Directions: There are some questions that are easy to answer, others that are more important that are harder to answer (@emmeslin). The social implications of new tech, esp if algorithms can exponentially increase biases and misinformation, are the latter (@SocMedDr) #CSPC2018

We really put the FUN in dysfunctional - Canada is a relatively small country on a population standpoint, but we are ever smaller if we are divided across provinces - @cdavidnaylor #CSPC2018
+ the majority of dollars in HERD come from universities, not federal. To note, provinces don't contribute much either, though QuΓ©bec has been a model to follow.
Canada doesn't collaborate well across provincial borders, they work much more with international partners. We have a chance to knit #cdnsci closer together and make our science more national ➑️ we have a chance to realign
