                                      This is a time for leadership in science and innovation.

                                      The contract (or compact) between science and society is changing. The interface between science, innovation, and policy making must change, too.

                                      If your work touches on science, innovation, and/or policy development and you’re finding yourself needing new tools to lead through the times, then the virtual Leadership Development Program in Science and Innovation (LDPSI) is for you.

                                      The program is delivered in three modules – Governance in Canada; Science, Innovation, and Society; and Leadership – with a group project, on-demand support, and coaching and mentoring.

                                      LDPSI is delivered in partnership with the Canadian Science Policy Centre (CSPC) and as a program participant, you will receive a free conference pass to the annual CSPC conference.


                                      This program will develop your leadership competencies in:

                                      • Understanding the ‘cultures’ of science, innovation, and policy-making
                                      • Analyzing interpersonal skills
                                      • Synthesizing research
                                      • Managing expert communities
                                      • Communicating scientific knowledge
                                      • Advising policy makers
                                      • Engaging citizens and stakeholders
