College-university symposium

10 january 2023

On 10 January 2023, QCAM will organise a college-university networking symposium on materials science (Colloque de maillage interordre en science des matériaux), in collaboration with the CCTT Network (Réseau des CCTT). This free event will be held in French and will take place at Collège Montmorency (Laval). Its aim will be to encourage the dialogue between college and academic materials science researchers. The round-table discussion will bring together panelists representing all stakeholders, including Janice Bailey (FRQNT), Marie-Pierre Ippersiel (PRIMA), Marie Gagné (Réseau des CCTT) and our member Mario Leclerc (U.Laval).

Places to attend in-person will be limited : you are kindly invited to register for the symposium from now until 16 December. The talks and the round-table discussion will be streamed online (more details will follow). A report of the round-table discussion will be drawn up (and made available in English upon request).

Registration // Program

CIRODD and QCAM are co-organising the first symposium on the integration of sustainable development aspects into materials science research, which is taking place (in French) at ETS on 2 February 2023. This symposium will feature the following three sessions: talks by CIRODD & QCAM members, a panel discussion and a participatory workshop during which you will continue discussing the issues highlighted in the talks and propose possible solutions.
