The Chief Scientist of Québec, Rémi Quirion, and the Director of Societal Challenges and Intersectoral Networking at the Fonds de recherche du Québec (FRQ) are pleased to invite you to the launch of a new program aimed at supporting bold, risky research projects with high impact potential: AUDACE. You will have the opportunity to discuss with FRQ staff the details of this intersectoral program, a new funding opportunity for projects that are not only unconventional and innovative, but involve unusual collaboration between different fields and sectors of research.
