Highly Qualified Personnel Study

Advanced research computing (ARC) plays a critical role in driving innovation by facilitating research. To support ARC, Ontario requires highly qualified personnel (HQP) who have expertise in their domain as well as using ARC resources to conduct research. Compute Ontario commissioned a study with R.A Malatest & Associates Ltd., to examine HQP in Ontario.

This report examines the challenges faced by academia and industry in attracting, retaining, and developing the HQP the province requires. It also provides Compute Ontario with 12 recommendations that form the basis for their efforts in supporting Ontario with its HQP needs.
