NOVEMBER 2012, Volume 5, Number 10

Financed by:


The 5th RQR symposium took place at the Plaza Québec on November 14th and 15th 2012. The format of the symposium was dynamic and focused on interactions. The 217 participants had the opportunity to hear 12 presentations and see 68 poster presentations.

A novelty this year was the Think Tank on student/researcher/research professionals. Participants had wireless voting devices to answer questions concerning the relation between researchers and students. The results from this activity can be found here.

You can see pictures from the symposium on our Facebook page.

If you could not attend the Symposium, you can still download the program booklet.
