This first session held in Toronto gave defence scientists, Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members and 85 academic researchers in the area of human performance, a chance to explore how science and technology can bring the CAF to the next level. A call for research proposals in this domain will be sought soon through an open competitive process.”
