SYMPOSIUM 2003
LEADERS OF TOMORROW

DATE: Tuesday, October 7, 2003

PLACE: Room 200, West Block, Parliament Hill, Ottawa

The 2003 Annual PAGSE Meeting provided a unique opportunity for federal politicians, as well as departmental, agency and private sector representatives, to meet and talk to outstanding young researchers about their work. These “Leaders of Tomorrow” have already contributed significantly to Canadian leadership in science and engineering, social sciences, medicine and innovation and their achievements span a range of fields important to Canada's competitiveness, scientific and technological vigour, and economic strength. Round table discussions during the day provided an opportunity for the “Leaders of Tomorrow” to discuss S&T policy with PAGSE and Federal Granting Agency representatives and to compare experiences with each other. At the closing reception on Parliament Hill, four of the scientists gave brief descriptions of their work, highlighting its importance and potential impact on Canada's future.
