Research and Infrastructure Funding
The Minister of Health and Social Services (MSSS) and the Fonds de recherche du Québec - Society and Culture (FRQSC) have decided to postpone the renewal of university designations and research infrastructures. This means that the submission of the infrastructure renewal application to the FQRSC will take place in October 2020 and that of the university designation in the summer of 2021. A new schedule and an action plan will soon be put in place by the CREGÉS in order to continue the scientific programming and to realize the request for renewal during this additional year.
