Graduate Student Seminar Series
Telfer Research Seminar Series (TRSS)
The Telfer Research Seminar Series (TRSS) is intended to bring together leading academic scholars, business leaders, and policymakers from universities, corporations, governments, research institutes, think-tanks, and embassies from around the world to engage our students and professors in discussions and presentations on key issues.
Potential speakers will be drawn from a wide cross-section of academic institutions and other organizations and will include CEOs from major corporations, senior policymakers from Industry Canada, heads of research labs within Ottawa and Canada, representatives from non-profit research consortia and networks such as CMC Microsystems representatives from foreign embassies, and venture capitalists.
The TRSS will provide the opportunity for students to develop their research and employment network.
The Telfer Forums are public panels created to connect thought leaders at Telfer School with the community. In these engaging public events, academics and leading experts in the public and private sectors share their knowledge on relevant and timely topics informing and supporting the business community, practitioners, policymakers, as well as organizations.
