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 Québec 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 ➡️ we have a chance to realign
#CSPC2018 @cdavidnaylor says our full #cdnsci potential will only be unleashed with national support, and highlights urgent actions needed for #Budget2019 and beyond. He also discussed some of this incl support for #trainees yesterday (#Thread at )
He also mentions #NCEs can be reimagined to link research driven collaborations across the country, not just partnership driven.

++ reiterates the trainees are most likely to cross international AND provincial boundaries, they will drive #cdnsci and they need support! #CSPC2018
#CSPC2018 @ChiefSciCan continues the panel and thanks @cdavidnaylor and @gillespatry for helping to bring about her position as CSA. She wants us to think about 3 areas.
1. How do we develop national action plans? Dr. Naylor talked about a plan for precision medicine yesterday
2. Training & talent development. We have more students now in colleges and universities, we need more space, more profs, more federal support for tricouncil into those areas.

3. Big science & big data infrastructure. There are strategic & practical considerations
+ more provincial chief science advisors would be a big help to @ChiefSciCan, in addition to more departmental science advisors at the federal level. This will lead to better #EBDM and #scipol in Canada as a whole
Michael Strong @CIHR_IRSC follows @ChiefSciCan and says the roadmaps built so far incl new impact center report it of @UofT are useful but often redundant. There should be better whole of government approaches moving forward, better logistics
Our students funded by @CIHR_IRSC know they are not heading to academic careers, yet we still train them for those 8% who "make it" in academia. We need to shift and broaden training to be inclusive of broader careers #altac - Michael Strong #CSPC2018
How do we train the #NextGenCanSci next generation of researchers if they don't know yet if they will be researchers? The pipeline is not as relevant as it once was.

June 7 2020, is @CIHR_IRSC 20th anniversary, keep an eye out for a 10 year strategy moving fwd.
#CSPC2018 Janet Rossant @GairdnerAwards notes the importance of fundamental research, that getting answers requires money, patience, and thick-skinned researchers. The latest #NobelPrize winners for medicine were studying T-cells, didn't expect to lead to immunotherapy
#CSPC2018 Marc LePage says 70M$ of @GenomeCanada funding is federal, 50M$ provincial, 50M$ industry. 6 centres across the country. More fed-prov cohesion and dialogue benefits all.

(I'll add, they also have awesome #scipol champs @RachAelCMaxwell @robannan @clopezcorrea +++)
#CSPC2018 @kristaconnell says it isn't just about the money! As the only provincial perspective in the panel, she agrees that fed/prov strategies are too often disjointed and adhoc. Prov research agencies have come a long way and should be at the table, they bring value.
Both the federal government and agencies, as well as universities, have ignored the voice and place at the table of provincial agencies. Yet, prov agencies hold peer reviewed competitions, support discovery research, fund trainees - @kristaconnell #CSPC2018
Great question from @yukoncollege (soon, University!) as to what considerations there are in fed-prov research for northern communities and scientists. @cdavidnaylor says lots of work ahead but the #AllBoatsRise theme of #FSR stays true for them and for #indigenous broadly
