____________________________________________________________________________________

The Office of the Vice-President, Research and Associate Provost, will be hosting a roundtable discussion for University individuals either already coordinating or interested in coordinating science outreach activities. The purpose of the meeting is:

  • To exchange information about existing programs, ideally through brief handouts.
  • To identify best practices which have made such programs successful
  • To identify challenges and problems these programs may face
  • To seek solutions, additional sources of funding etc.
  • To discuss how these programs can be better coordinated. For example, could we have one-stop web portal advertising these programs?
  • Are there better ways to extend our programs to underserved groups?
  • Are there any partnerships that we should form?

The details are as follows:

April 19, 2006

4pm to 6pm

Governing Council Chamber, Simcoe Hall

Light refreshments will be provided.
