The 2020 Celebration of Excellence and Engagement of the Royal Society of Canada in partnership with the University of Toronto will be a week-long scholarly and scientific exploration combining in-person activities with enhanced digital engagement. 

Over seven days, from November 23 to November 29, 1,000 delegates will engage in over 70 sessions featuring the insights of hundreds of scholars, clinicians, artists and scientists.  There will be two international symposia: the G7 Research Summit on the Future of Digital Health; and a symposium organized by the University of Toronto linking the 100th anniversary of the discovery of insulin to the legacies of this discovery including COVID-19 therapeutics. 

Nearly all activities will be live, and then made available for download. 

Some activities will be open discussions, others will be presentations of the latest research findings followed by Q&A. 

However, most important is that all activities provide opportunities for engagement, learning, and the exchange of insights and experience. All are welcome, all are invited to contribute.
