The following message is sent on behalf of Helen M. Burt, VP Research & International pro tem. You are receiving this as a dean, director, manager or head of an academic or administrative unit – kindly distribute to faculty members, staff and students as appropriate. Thank you.
I would like to invite you to participate in a campus-wide consultation in response to the recently announced federal government panel on innovation and review of fundamental science. We have arranged roundtable sessions at which we would like to hear your perspectives and advice on UBC’s submission to the two federal initiatives.
Please visit https://research.ubc.ca/federal_initiatives to register to attend one of these sessions in Vancouver or Kelowna, and to learn more about the federal initiatives and UBC’s planned consultation.
Sessions are planned for both campuses, and are open to UBC faculty and staff across all disciplines.
This is an important opportunity for UBC to inform Canada’s approach to research and innovation. I encourage you to join in this consultation, and thank you in advance for your time to participate.
Vice President Research & International pro tem
