Conference Sponsorship Opportunities

The CAREB-ACCER National Conference and Annual General Meeting offers high-visibility opportunities for sponsorship. Over 250 registrants, representing over 300 Research Ethics Boards from across Canada, attend this event. If you are interested in becoming a supporter, please consider the following events and amounts for sponsorship.

The main conference is preceded with a workshop day where ethics administrators and REB members learn practical skills that help them in their day-to-day duties. The main conference plenary sessions aim to foster thinking on current ethical topics and challenges related to research involving humans, for example artificial intelligence, genetic research and research involving Indigenous Peoples.

This year’s 2020 conference, which will take place in Ottawa on April 1-3, marks CAREB’s 20th anniversary. We are therefore hoping to make it one of our best.

Your sponsorship will contribute to the educational offering of the conference, for example by helping us bring in high-level keynote and other speakers, offer reduced fees for students, and allowing us to provide more information to our members in both official languages.

Please contact Dawn Pollon at [email protected] if you have any questions, using the subject line "Annual Conference Sponsorship / Vendor Request".
