Launch of the tenth edition of the Étudiants-chercheurs étoiles awards

Rémi Quirion, Québec’s chief scientist, has announced the launch the tenth edition of the Étudiants-chercheurs étoiles awards, which are handed out by the three Fonds de recherche du Québec.

The deadline to submit an application is September 1, 2016.

The awards aim to promote research careers and recognize the excellence of the research projects undertaken by university students, postdoctoral trainees and members of professional bodies in advanced research training programs in the areas covered by the Fonds.

“There are excellent research students in Québec, and it is important to recognize their talent and contribution to the scientific discoveries that will become tomorrow’s innovations,” affirmed Rémi Quirion.

Every month, each Fonds awards $1 000 to the winner and shares his or her work on the Fonds’ Web sites. The winners may also be featured in other news media outlets and at events, including Les années lumière and Bien dans son assiette on ICI Radio-Canada Première, campus media, Curium magazine and the Gala Reconnaissance du Palais des congrès de Montréal.
