CMS Town Hall Meeting and NSERC Update on Institute Innovation Platform Funding
Saturday, December 6, 12:30 - 14:00
The CMS Town Hall meeting and NSERC Update on Institute Innovation Platform Funding will occur on Saturday, December 6, from 12:30 - 14:00. All CMS members and meeting participants are invited to join the CMS Executive and NSERC to engage on upcoming plans and to discuss any interests or concerns that members of our community may have. A light lunch will be provided courtesy of NSERC’s partnership.
Unlike the CMS' AGM that focuses on what was achieved last year, this meeting focuses on what lies ahead. There will be a short
presentation followed by questions and answers. This is an opportunity for participants to get together with the CMS
Executive and discuss emerging issues as well as directly voice their opinions, concerns and interests.
