Partners-researchers “Speed Networking” Think-Tank Meeting

Our first partners-researchers meeting in English will be held on January 17, 2019, from 1 to 4 pm, in Montreal.

Co-organized with the Federation CJA, this meeting aims to facilitate a first contact between representatives of partners and researchers interested in our initiative, to imagine possible collaborations and to discuss possible research projects. We have organized several meetings of this kind in French before, but this will be the first time that the activity will be held in English. All are welcome!
