Now attending the breakout panel on training the next generation ➑️ how to best equip students and trainees to succeed outside academia?

@Innovation_CBoC data presented to frame the discussion ⬇️

PhD graduates are represented across diverse fields in and beyond academe
Questions

1. Are we training students and trainees effectively?

2. How can we improve this?

3. Who do we need to educate?
Top points:
πŸ”΅ Seeking skills outside PhD should not be misconstrued as a lack of commitment to research
πŸ”΅ PhDs need plans A, B, C ➑️ many won't get into an academic plan A, so we can't train them as one-spoked wheels

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 second of 3 panels today @research_money, on industry perspectives on #superclusters. Moderated by Martha Crago @McGill_VPRI @mcgillu, w/ Moya Cahill @PanGeoSubsea, David Dzisiak @corteva @canolacouncil, @slapierreceo @tealbook, and Warren Wall @dwavesys
#RM_Ott19 @dwavesys is an early partner of @DTSupercluster and wants to better penetrate the πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ market (they have had more success internationally). @tealbook is collaborating w/ @ccab_national and pitching to @AISupplyChain
#RM_Ott19 theme of "no prophet in your own hometown" is common thread across industry leaders presenting here @research_money, from @dwavesys to @PanGeoSubsea to @questortech. πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ companies tend to thrive internationally, but have trouble in home market. #superclusters might help.

#RM_Ott19 @research_money next panel is on IP w/ Erin Campbell @ISED_CA, @psnelgro @CanHealthyOcean, Sumitra Rajagopalan of BioAstra, and Max Skudra @ccab_national
EC: What does IP mean to you, how has your understanding changed over time?
@psnelgro : understood that trainees' careers and training must be prioritized when considering IP. Single IP policies must often be revised on case by case basis
#RM_Ott19
SR: Good IP policy is dependent on monetization policy around it. A sound IP strategy can create win win agreements (e.g. researcher has back end IP, partner gets front end / application IP, so everyone gets benefits in the long run)

Arrived at @research_money conf #RM_Ott19 just as the contribution of @MitacsCanada and presence of #CSPF is mentioned... Good timing!

I'm here w/ my @NSERC_CRSNG colleagues, and also happy to see @DSP_SPE included as a partner + that @MarieFranquin is on a panel this morning πŸ™Œ
Keynote speaker #RM_Ott19 is David Watters discussing the impact of #Budget2019 on Canadian research and Canada as a whole. Excellent summary and great figures ⬇️
Supporting research excellence was a relatively small investment compared to big ticket items in #Budget2019. GERD/GDP is still very low compared to OECD colleagues

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

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
