Is Canada doing all we can to train and employ advanced graduates?

A policy forum hosted by Mitacs, “Talent for Innovation” will discuss the skills graduates need to excel professionally — and the strategies Canada needs to effectively engage and employ our research innovators.

In the first of two panels, students and early career researchers will discuss their own experiences in finding meaningful careers in and out of academia. The second panel will feature industry and academic leaders who will offer perspectives on training and opportunities for emerging researchers.

Join us at the forum — and continue the discussion at the reception.
