PAGSE Annual Activity Report 2011
The Partnership Group for Science and Engineering (PAGSE; www.pagse.org) is a cooperative association of 26 national organizations in Science and Engineering. It was formed in June 1995 at the invitation of the Academy of Science of the Royal Society of Canada. The national organizations that comprise PAGSE represent approximately 50,000 individual members from industry, academia, and government sectors. They work collectively to represent the Canadian science and engineering community to the Government of Canada, and to advance research and innovation for the benefit of Canadians. PAGSE is not a lobby group. It does not seek an audience in order to advance the cause of specific science and engineering initiatives. Rather, its intent is to address the broader issues of science and engineering policy at the national level.
To be truly representative of the science and engineering community in Canada, PAGSE must ensure that individual members of member societies and associations are aware of the activities that are undertaken in their name. While details may be found on the PAGSE website (www.pagse.org), PAGSE also provides a periodic summary of activities.
The Canadian Society of Microbioloigsts is a member of PAGSE. Dr. Nancy Martin, CSM VP is the CSM representative and participates on behalf of CSM in PAGSE's meetings and activities.
