RE - risk assessment for data security is a daunting task ➡️ so it's important to be able to communicate what is known, what can be done. Govt needs to be forthcoming to build great relationships, to build trust.
BN - the best partnerships are built on strong relationships.

Last workshop of the day, on performance indicators and their relative usefulness, presented by the new prez @CAUT_ACPPU ⬇️ #scipol#science#metrics
There are problems with citation counts!
🔹 Double entries and self citations blur the results
🔹 Everyone cites outrageous articles, and not because they're good
🔹 Citations aren't a good metric for all disciplines
🔹#ECR get less citations

Now attending the breakout panel on training the next generation ➡️ how to best equip students and trainees to succeed outside academia?
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
Stellar panel at @research_money#RM_Ott19 to cap off the evening, chaired by Paul Dufour, w/ Dan Wayner @NRC_CNRC, Sarah Gallagher @scgQuasar@csa_asc, and @ChiefSciCan
P Dufour - There is nothing more useless, than unwanted science advice. Need demand, context, and institutional capacity to sustain it. It's important to maintain trust, and not to oversell the role of advisors.
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 🙌
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 ⬇️
#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
