OTTAWA, Dec. 17, 2018 /CNW/ - The Royal Society of Canada (RSC) is delighted to release the latest in its series of RSC Position Papers. Entitled "Next Steps for Sustainable Science Advice in Canada", the paper advances the RSC's strategic priority of contributing to policy and public discussions by outlining opportunities that, if seized, would contribute to a better future. The paper is publicly and freely available at www.rsc-src.ca/en/nextsteps.
As Canada's national academy since its founding in 1882, the RSC's members include Fellows elected for their exceptional achievements over a sustained period as well as emerging scholars, scientists and artists.
"This Position Paper results from the work of so many, including the members of the RSC Council and a drafting team chaired by David Naylor," said RSC President Chad Gaffield. "The recommendations suggest how the Government of Canada can more fully leverage its investments in research by enabling and facilitating external science advice. "
The RSC Position Paper elaborates and builds on themes from previous publications including "Strengthening Government by Strengthening Scientific Advice" (2015).
