Launch of an international conferences competition

July 11th, 2016

The Fonds de recherche du Québec and the Club des Ambassadeurs du Palais des congrès de Montréal have launched a competition to recognize the work of individuals who organize international scientific conferences at Palais des congrès de Montréal. Three awards, each valued at $10 000, will be handed out. Please read the competition rules for further details.

Major international scientific conferences extend the outreach of research teams, their institutions and Québec as a whole and foster networking and collaborations in Québec and abroad. In addition, they yield intellectual benefits for the local scientific community and significant economic impacts for Québec.
