The Palais des congrès de Montréal, its Ambassadors Club and the Fonds de recherche du Québec have recently strengthened their partnership with an agreement that runs until 2019, with the goal to attract more international scientific conventions to Montréal.
Foreseen in the partnership is the awarding of the Prix du Club des Ambassadeurs du Palais des congrès de Montréal et des Fonds de recherche du Québec, which was awarded for the first time in November 2016 to researchers invested in organising international scientific conventions.
“It is important for researchers to get involved in organizing international scientific conferences. Those who’ve done it know that although it demands a lot of time, the benefits to their research career is invaluable. Which is why the Fonds de recherche du Québec are proud of this partnership, and also that the competition recognizing the work of researchers in organizing big scientific conferences will continue to thrive,” points out Rémi Quirion, Québec’s Chief Scientist.
