Building scientific capacity and a new generation of researchers (Host: SK)


Advances in technology and increasing digitalization, before and exacerbated during the pandemic, have led to higher demand for advanced skills sets. To build the future of work, we need to empower a new generation of researchers by nurturing talent and creating opportunities for career development. The critical importance of building scientific capability is apparent, and the first steps have already been taken with the Government of Canada investing over $550 million to support more than 5,500 researchers from coast to coast to coast, and universities across Canada creating opportunity for experiential learning in leading research labs to help young researchers develop the foundational skills and experience needed to pursue meaningful careers in R&D and related fields. Supporting researchers in the early stages of their career helps them build an innovative mindset, confidence and important industry and community connections. Yet, these young researchers face many challenges, including establishing research credentials or having them recognized, limited resources for research, and high competition for the scarce research positions available. Join leaders as they share their personal and organizational initiatives, experiences and learnings in building scientific capacity and supporting a new generation of researchers for a better future world of work. Introduced by Florence […]
