Residents of the Northeast Avalon have a chance to help identify research opportunities of strategic importance to the province during a public consultation session tonight in St. John’s.
Memorial is holding the session tonight from 7-9 p.m., at the Fluvarium.
The feedback will help guide the development of a new research plan at Memorial which will support future growth in research at the university.
“Tonight’s consultation is an opportunity for residents of the Northeast Avalon to share their thoughts on research opportunities here in this province with Memorial,” said Dr. Ray Gosine, vice-president (research) pro tempore. “We want to have a discussion with members of the public – whether they are connected in some way with the university or simply have a vested interest in research activity – to come out, tell us their ideas, and help guide the development of our new research plan.”
Everyone is welcome to attend, and there is no prior registration required.
Coffee and tea will be served at 6:30 p.m., with the meetings beginning at 7 p.m.
For those unable to attend the session, a short survey is available online.
