#CASC2020     #ScienceIncubators

We invite you to join us May 27 to 29, 2020 in Ottawa, Ontario.

Our 18th Annual Conference is expected to welcome upwards of 200 delegates from across our country. This three-day conference, hosted by Ingenium - Canada's Museums of Science and Innovation , features pre-conference activities, engaging learning sessions, keynote speakers, networking events that include a welcome reception, a trade-show and our National CASCADE Awards and Banquet. 

This year's CASC conference theme is Global Science Incubators

Through our activities, staff, stakeholders and partners, Canada’s sciences centres and science museums are enabling a truly national dialogue that inspires scientific innovation, inclusiveness, and meaningful collaboration. Innovation is not accomplished in silos – to be successful in today’s world, we have to embrace our role as global scientific and cultural connectors, a gathering hub where ideas mature, hatch, take flight!  

NOTICE: Due to the COVID-19 virus the CASC conference scheduled for May 2020 will be rescheduled.
We regret the impact of this decision. The health and safety of our members, their staff and the public are our top priorities. Please check our website and our social media channels for updates.   


Ends Apr.10, 2020
