How to become a member

Procedure for nominating members to the General Assembly

To become a full member or associate member of CRIR, the candidate must submit a written request to the scientific direction indicating, in a cover letter, his interest in habilitation-rehabilitation research, the percentage of time he intends to devote to research at CRIR and attach his curriculum vitae for evaluation. The letter must be accompanied by a recommendation from his immediate superior.

The request is evaluated by the Research Orientation Committee and presented to the General Assembly for recommendation to the Board of Directors, which puts forth the nomination. The appointment is for a period of three years. Any researcher who desires to renew his status must present, on recommendation of the institution where most of his research activities are carried out, a written request indicating his interest to remain at CRIR, the percentage of time devoted to research, as well as a progress report of research activities.
