RSC Quebec:




Presentation of RSC New Fellows and College Members

& Science and Society in an era of pluralism







The President of the Royal Society of Canada, the Presidents of the three academies and the President of the College of New Scholars are delighted to invite you to the Presentation of New RSC Fellows, College Members and Awards Winners from the RSC Quebec, that will take place at the University of Montreal on Thursday April 18th, 2019, at 10:00am. Following the presentation and the lunch, a discussion about researchers' efforts to actively deepen the links between science and society will be launched. This dimension builds on the work undertaken by the RSC and the G7 Academies with their 2018 Statements about the Arctic and Our Digital Future as major scientific challenges. Speakers come from a variety of disciplinary fields and share a common desire to bring science and society together.
