G7 Academies' Summit

Sunday, March 18, 2018 - 17:30 to Tuesday, March 20, 2018 - 15:00
Ottawa, Ontario
With domestic and international partners, including the Government of Canada, the RSC is preparing a series of G7 Research Summits throughout 2018 that will culminate in Halifax in November during our annual gathering.
The first event in the series will be held in Ottawa from March 18-20, 2018. The morning of Monday, March 19 will be devoted to a series of roundtables where delegates will share insights and experiences common to the internal operations of their Academies. In the afternoon, discussions will continue at the beautiful Canadian Museum of Nature. The first session of the afternoon programme will be devoted to exchanging insights, evidence and opportunities in advancing gender equity in research.

Following the discussion on gender equity in research, delegates will tour the Museum to visit its outstanding new exhibit focused on the Arctic. Following the tour, the RSC will host a reception in which delegates will connect with policymakers and the diplomatic corps from their countries as well as other domestic partners. Then, on March 20, the group will finalize their two statements before heading on a guided tour of the Canadian Museum of History during the afternoon.
