- COMP has an agreement with the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) to fund one or more Innovation Grants to enhance the safe use of ionizing radiation in medicine. The intent of the program is to support the creation of innovative tools that address radiation safety and security issues. COMP is currently accepting applications for the 2022 Innovation Grant Competition! For information, visit our CNSC Innovation Grant page.

- IDEAs at Home: STEM Outreach
In a world dominated by storytelling (the next superhero movie, the newest Netflix series or a New York Times bestseller), it is increasingly important to tell our own stories – who we are, what we do, and why we do it. In fact, storytelling is one of the fundamental things that make us human. We are all used to presenting our work to colleagues but we probably also all have times we would like to forget, where we’ve bombed in front of an audience of high school kids, a kindergarten class, or even friends at a party. This session will informally explore communications and outreach strategies and share experiences to find some good practices for different target communities. What was your best outreach experience? Why was it effective? We will look at how messaging must consider the audience and that varying approaches and content will be required for maximum impact. This will NOT be a training event, but a way for people to begin to answer the question, “How do I become a better communicator?” If you are interested in attending, please register at this link.
The session will take place on Monday, November 21st at 8PM AT/7PM ET/6PM CT/5PM MT/4PM PT.
