Panel Organized by: Amy Lemay, VISTA Science & Technology Inc. | Rob Annan, Genome Canada 

The increasing expectations for science to provide the solutions for a variety of socio-economic challenges is a testament to our belief in the PROMISE OF SCIENCE. Yet, few in the science and innovation community are aware of the power of the PROMISE OF SCIENCE in shaping policy decisions and outcomes.

Join this unique interactive OPEN FISHBOWL panel, where the audience are the speakers, as we critically reflect on and discuss the power of the PROMISE OF SCIENCE and its implications for science policy. Collectively, we will recommend potential policy actions formanaging the PROMISE OF SCIENCE in science policy.
