Alright, #CSPC2018 @sciencepolicy, it's time to build some #HYPE!

Fuel up on ☕ & head up to panel #506 in the Capitale room at 3:30!

Great insights from panelists incl @tgruos @DSP_SPE & @MadisonRilling #CIÉ @SciChefQC and *news* (hype!) on the way for #nextgen in 🇨🇦 #scipol.
Here goes! Still time to join us #CSPC2018!
@BelislePipon @HarvardSciPol #FRQ introduces very first panel organized by #CIÉ @SciChefQC, w/ @BlakeFreier @tgruos @DSP_SPE @DLEKirkwood @MadisonRilling. Paul Dufour, as always, is our guide!

#CSPC2018 @sciencepolicy
#CSPC2018 @sciencepolicy received support from @SciChefQC @FRQS1 @FRQSC @FRQ_NT. Notably Rémi is now co-chair of. @INGSciAdvice, and 2-5 Nov 2020 will be a joint INGSA-CSPC conference 🙌🙌🙌.

And congrats @SciChefQC for staying through one more power shift in Québec!
Stay until the end, Paul will make comments re: @sciencepolicy #CSPC2018 on the basis of this panel on #nextgen
New interesting report, called NISR, National Inuit Strategy for Research, was highlighted as something to read by Paul Dufour. One recommendation touches @ChiefSciCan 's comment on integrating #scienceadvice from diff sources - a deputy sci advisor from territories #CSPC2018
Paul Dufour is a #scipol junkie, and he takes the issue of engaging new talent in #scipol seriously. There has been a tipping point, where students + post-docs have started paying attention. This panel comes with recommendations #CSPC2018
#CSPC2018 @BlakeFreier is an alum of #SOTLnorth and PhD of. Philosophy from @UWaterloo studying #scipol and #EBDM.

#sotlnorth (cc @ericbkennedy) is a Bootcamp on #scipol in Canada that brings knowledge and connections. Applications open soon, keep an eye out!
#CSPC2018 @tgruos is new. Co-President at @DSP_SPE that creates platforms for #scipol dialogue and is a springboard for trainees to get into #scipol. They also represent trainees in policy at fed & prov levels ➡️
As a French postdoc, she saw a friend in the lab (cc @Fanny_Dupuy) working nights and weekend on @DSP_SPE, then got hooked herself. These trainees are brave, and they learn by doing. They bring their own chairs to the table 🙌 #CSPC2018
#CSPC2018 @MadisonRilling is a member of #CIÉ, which works under the #FRQ (incl @FRQS1 @FRQSC @FRQ_NT) and the chief scientist @SciChefQC. His global role is to bring advice to the ministry, but in 2014 built up the #CIÉ to get advice of his own, from the #nextgen
#CIÉ exists in a lasting way within the governance structure of the #FRQ @SciChefQC. Every board in FRQ has a student member as well, @MadisonRilling sits at @FRQ_NT and @BelislePipon at @FRQS1. The next generation is at the table in Québec 👏👏👏 #CSPC2018
#CSPC2018 @DLEKirkwood works at @NRCan, as Chief Scientist. From a geology PhD, she stumbled upwards (don't we all?) into this position. This is a shop at NRCan on integrating science better into policy. Half the dept is #cdnsci and 70% budget is science.
Young folks out of university wanting #policy experience can join @NRCan via dedicated 3-year program. They hire 40-60 analysts per year. They also hire student scientists, who can be exposed to the #policy side. They also host @MitacsCanada #CSPF #scipol fellows #CSPC2018
Individual depts and agencies define the project before you apply for @MitacsCanada #cspf, you know what you are working on, you get broad training, you bring in fresh ideas. Next cohort applications open soon, in Ottawa and BC. Other prov to come! #CSPC2018
#CSPC2018 @tgruos expands on what @DSP_SPE has done so far and where we are going:

➡️ Public forums in #Montreal. This year, #cannabis and #CannabisAct, last year on #genomics w/ support from @CIHR_IRSC. These engage the public and incl scientists and policymakers
➡️ #Budget2018 presence via #Students4theReport #supportthereport, with support of 300,000 trainees

➡️ #Budget2019 presence via survey on scholarships and fellowships. Over 850 responders so far, to bring evidence to policy and rep the student voice.
📢 #CSPC2018 @sciencepolicy

@DSP_SPE is now bringing together trainee driven #scipol groups (!!) incl @TOSciPolicyNet #CIÉ with support from @ChiefSciCan @SciChefQC @MitacsCanada @univcan @ISSP_uOttawa @CAPSACSP and many others. More details to come 🙌
This Canadian network means to bring together resources and opportunities for trainees, and to be a central rallying point. If you are a #scipol trainee group, or engaged / interested trainee, please get in touch (contact[at] to join in!

@DSP_SPE board members and ex presidents @sung_vanessa and @ShawnMcGuirk (that's me!) heading to the USA #NSPN2018 @scipolnetwork in the next few days to keep this conversation going #CSPC2018
#CSPC2018 @DLEKirkwood highlights the major impact students and trainees can have now and in their up and coming careers. @tgruos and @MadisonRilling talk about this new network as a way to bring together many groups and share resources, skills, network, successes, failures
(some more great tweets on this panel by another #scipol student leader @oxidantshappen here )
Both @SSHRC_CRSH and @NSERC_CRSNG folks speaking up in Q&A to find out more about trainee-led initiatives. Liz Boston @NSERC_CRSNG notes how more diverse careers incl #scipol need support. How do we convince profs? #CSPC2018
#CSPC2018 @tgruos says metrics drives what careers are supported. Broader definition of excellence would be a game-changer. Shout out to 2016 SPE white paper. @MadisonRilling agrees and cites that many other papers do so as well
#CSPC2018 @BelislePipon notes the patience of @SciChefQC in letting the #CIÉ grow and mature, to the point where they are both vital and viral in their impact at #FRQ. Allowing trainees to bloom by giving them a chance to do so is a key step
#CSPC2018 @tgruos says having a champion and mentor like @SciChefQC is one way to drive #scipol in the next generation, another is @DSP_SPE model of bringing your own chair and building it at grassroots level.
Q from student about how to get involved without resources? @tgruos says this is the point of having a network that can provide support and accessibility. You can start your own group, it's not always easy, but we @DSP_SPE will empower any who want to start their own! #CSPC2018
#CSPC2018 @MadisonRilling adds that if you get that seat (no matter how), make it sustainable so that other trainees can take that space as you move on.
Alana Westwood @NRCan #cspf @MitacsCanada shouts out to @E4Dca as fostering a network and training incubator as well. Not many get through selective programs like #CSPF though, how do we democratize opportunities? #CSPC2018
#CSPC2018 @BlakeFreier says he found out about #SOTLnorth (which has an A+ alumni network as well) via his prof, and sensitizing academia in general may be a way to ensure more have access to opportunities
+++ champions like Paul Dufour are key! #CSPC2018
