Launch of the new Public-Private Partnership Research Chairs Program of the FRQ

The Fonds de recherche du Québec (FRQ) are proud to announce the launch of the first competition of their new Public-Private Partnership Research Chairs Program (C3P).

In the context of the post-pandemic economic recovery, the main objective of this program is to support sustainable partnerships between private companies and Québec universities, by developing their research capacity and supporting a new generation of researchers in order to generate significant economic benefits for Québec.

“Universities are key to the post-pandemic economic recovery. In this sense, the C3P program is an additional tool in their toolbox, facilitating research partnerships and fostering the emergence of a diverse and inclusive generation of researchers, thus acting as a catalyst for socio-economic progress in Québec.”
-    Janice Bailey, Scientific Director of the FRQNT
