LEADERS OF TOMORROW

DATE: Tuesday, November 2, 2004

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

The 2004 Annual PAGSE Meeting provided an opportunity for federal politicians, government department, agency and private sector representatives to meet fifteen of Canada’s top young outstanding scientists and engineers. The expertise of these researchers covers natural and social sciences, engineering and medicine; they represent universities, colleges and research institutes across Canada. The day’s program included a roundtable discussion with agency heads on Canada’s future in science and technology; an address by, and dialogue with, Dr. Arthur Carty, the National Science Advisor; a session on working with the media and a reception on Parliament Hill, which highlighted all of the researchers & their work. Three delegates briefly explained their work and described how it is raising Canada’s research profile and confirms the value of the Government’s research investments.
