Panel Organized by: The University of Toronto, Office of the Vice-President, Research & Innovation / Bureau du vice-recteur à la recherche et l'innovation, Université de Toronto

We are living in an increasingly connected world and, as Canadians, we pride ourselves on our global connections, diversity and openness. Breakthroughs in Canada depend on knowledge that is produced here and in global research centres. Announced in the 2018 Budget, the $275M Tri-Council Research Fund has been set to support international, interdisciplinary and high-risk research. However, governments have also begun to scrutinize and regulate collaborations for potential risks in areas such as research integrity, data access and sharing, and IP. A keynote speaker and a panel will explore best practices and opportunities to build and continue international collaborations.
