Dahdaleh Institute Research Fellow Mark Terry inducted as a fellow to the Royal Society of Canada
On November 27, Dahdaleh Institute Research Fellow Mark Terry will be inducted as a fellow to the Royal Society of Canada. Founded in 1882, the Royal Society of Canada (RSC) comprises the Academies of Arts, Humanities and Sciences, and The College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists. The RSC recognizes excellence, advises the government and the larger society, and promotes a culture of knowledge and innovation in Canada and with other national academies around the world.
This year RSC is welcoming 50 new Members of the College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists, that includes top mid-career leaders in Canada. The College provides the RSC with a multigenerational capacity to help Canada and the world address major challenges and seize new opportunities including those identified in emerging fields.
“The Royal Society of Canada is delighted to recognise this year’s exceptional cohort of inductees, as the contributions of these outstanding artists, scholars and scientists have significantly impacted their respective disciplines at both national and international levels.” says RSC President Jeremy McNeil.
The 2020 roster will be invited to accept membership on Friday, November 27. The ceremonies will be uniquely adapted this year to ensure all new members will participate – whether from home, from campus, or in Toronto. For the first time since 1882 the ceremony will be conducted online in which Mark will give a brief summary of his work. The Induction Ceremony will commence at 4:00pm.
