Supporting research: essential for our knowledge society

This post is slightly different than others on this blog in that it target professors, researchers, current graduate students and alumni who have graduated from universities located in the province of Quebec. Our provincial government recently announce deep cuts, from 13% to 30% for a total of 10M$. This is on top of serious under-investments in our University system (infrastructure maintenance, professor salaries, undergraduate teaching and general student services).

The major hospital-based research centres of the province have launch a joint effort to raise public awareness on this issue. Please visit and share the link below (yes it is in French only):

Couper en recherche , c’est tuer l’espoir
