Organized by: Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC)


Internationally, research funders are experimenting with ways to leverage their limited resources more strategically, effectively, and equitably. Powering Discovery, the 2021 Council of Canadian Academies report sponsored by NSERC, describes many promising methods — from innovations in program design and delivery, to shaping research practices and norms. This interactive panel brings together international perspectives to examine these initiatives and to reflect on how research funders can apply experimentation to foster a diverse and resilient scientific workforce, to support research excellence in all its forms across disciplines and career stages, and to be responsive to changing social and scientific landscapes.


À l'échelle internationale, les organismes de financement de la recherche expérimentent des moyens de tirer parti de leurs ressources limitées de façon plus stratégique, efficace et équitable. Dynamiser la découverte, le rapport 2021 du Conseil des académies canadiennes parrainé par le CRSNG, décrit de nombreuses méthodes prometteuses - des innovations dans la conception et la prestation des programmes à l'élaboration des pratiques et des normes de recherche. Ce panel interactif réunit des perspectives internationales pour examiner ces initiatives et réfléchir à la façon dont les organismes de financement de la recherche peuvent appliquer l'expérimentation pour favoriser une main-d'œuvre scientifique diversifiée et résiliente, pour appuyer l'excellence en recherche sous toutes ses formes, dans toutes disciplines et à toutes les étapes de la carrière, et pour s'adapter à l'évolution du contexte social et scientifique.
