Research Committee

Reporting to the BCI Board of Directors, the Research Committee fosters the exchange of information and dialogue between the Québec university research vice-rectors regarding development and funding of university research. It maintains close ties with research and innovation stakeholders in Québec, including relevant government departments, organizations that promote scientific culture and the advancement of research, and provincial and federal grant agencies. The Committee helps the research vice-rectors develop common positions on various issues, including the orientation and objectives of subsidy and bursary programs, indirect costs of research, and any legislative initiatives that may have an impact on research.
