Canadian Subatomic Physics Long Range Plan <br> Community mini-townhall consultation

US/Eastern
Virtual meeting

Virtual meeting

Description

The Long Range Plan Committee is holding a series of virtual consultation meetings, with the Canadian subatomic physics community, to discuss and seek feedback on cross-cutting issues impacting the community and its scientific objectives.

    • 12:00 14:00
      Topic 1: SAP community: Education, Training and Careers

      <u>Target audience</u>: Current or former graduate students, postdocs and research associates, who have received some or all of their training in Canada, including those now working outside the field.

      <u>Goal</u>: To develop a prioritized list of realistic initiatives in support for Subatomic Physics (SAP) education, careers and community organization, and which could be recommended to community organizations, funding agencies and other stakeholders.
