Open Science: What Sets Canada Apart

Open Science: What Sets Canada Apart

Canada is already a leader in open science, which involves sharing research information and data in crucial domains such as neuroscience. Exciting new opportunities are coming up in health and medicine that could expand our country's reach and impact even further on the international stage.

This event, hosted by the School in partnership with the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat, is your chance to hear from experts on the leading edge of open science about the benefits created for Canadians by Canada's open approach to biomedical research. Join us to learn about the innovation and collaboration involved in improving human health outcomes and share your thoughts about where we should go from here.
