CRIR Student Committee

CRIR is very pleased to support the next generation of researchers through its student committee. The latter is represented by one student representative of Axis I and Axis 2, as well as one student representative for each of the CRIR institutions.

The 2 axis student representatives express the views of the student members of CRIR, notably on the Research Orientation Committee (COR), which meets five times a year. The student representatives lead and belong to the student committee, which organizes several activities during the year, including orientation day (new students), the general meeting of students, workshops and conferences that reflect students’ needs, along with the annual student Symposium, held in the winter. These activities are among the privileges that CRIR members enjoy.

Getting involved in the student committee is an experience that is both intellectually and professionally gratifying. It is an enriching way to participate more actively in the life of your research centre. By helping plan student activities you can optimally extend your network and cooperate with other students and researchers from various disciplines, different universities and numerous research centres affiliated with the CRIR.

If you are a student with particular needs and wish to participate in CRIR events, please do not hesitate to inform the CRIR administration.

For more information about the committee and its activities, to join the committee, or for any other questions about CRIR, please email the CRIR administration at: administration.crir@ssss.gouv.qc.ca or contact the CRIR student committee members directly.

The students are integrated into various research programs and the 2 CRIR research axes. Two student representatives sit on the CRIR Research Orientation Committee (COR) and on other committees on an ad hoc basis, including the Communications Committee, a COR  subcommittee.

  • The call for applications to become part of the CRIR family and its student committee is usually issued in May of each year. CRIR student members are notified by email. Stay tuned!
