The main goal of this initiative is to create new bridges between research groups in different academic institutions. Furthermore, this program is a great opportunity to provide innovative preliminary research results that can be used to reach for other sources of funding. In order to promote research collaboration between co-researchers from various strategic clusters (SC) funded by the FRQNT, 6 of them – COPL, CQMF, INTRIQ, ReSMiQ, RQMP, STARacom, have jointly developed a funding program aimed at initiate joint projects. These must involve co-researchers affiliated with distinct SC and a minimum of $5,000 for each SC involved. The QCAM has committed $5,000 to this call for projects. All the details can be found here. The deadline to submit your proposal is October 2, 2023.
