Science diplomacy

Over the past 15 years, Québec has seen a surge in international research collaborations, with an increase from 35% in 2000 to 53% in 2015. Such associations allow a relatively small nation to make its mark on the world stage. The Fonds de recherche du Québec are intensifying their efforts to provide the research community with multiple opportunities for international collaboration, which constitute an undeniable diplomatic asset.
