New Website

The RQR website as a new look! In addition to being more user friendly, the site now has a new section for knowledge transfer entitled ‘Industry and General Public’.


RQR Website

Menus and tabs are in dark blue


In addition to the pre-existing sections, you can now see an image slider on the home page to accentuate selected events and sections of the site. The articles on the home page present the outreach of the RQR and its researchers. The main menu is unchanged, but a new menu at the top of the screen has been added to direct the visitors to the main sections of the site;  the presentation of the RQR, the Members, the student section, and the knowledge transfer section (Industry and General Public). To keep you informed of the RQR activities, the event calendar is still available under the ‘Events’ tab of the main menu in addition to the ‘Upcoming Events’ module which appears on the right column of every page of the site.


RQR Knowledge Transfer Website

Menus and tabs are in pale blue


This portion of the site, which is  accessible directly at the address, is reserved to the RQR knowledge transfer. It contains three parts targeted to different users: the researchers,  industry and the general public. Amongst other elements, your will find an event calendar, a ‘In the news’ section, and a link towards the ‘REPRODAction’, the new RQR journal on knowledge transfer (the first edition will be available shortly).

After a term of service on the Scientific Committee, Dr Marie-France Palin decided to concentrate on a new mandate on the Knowledge Transfer Committee. We  thank her for her participation during the meetings and for her ideas and views, which were instrumental in achievements of the Network in the last four years.

We are please to announce that Dr Guylain Boissonneault from the Université de Sherbrooke agreed to take up Dr Palin’s place on the Scientific Committee. We are  convinced that Dr Boissonneault’s participation will represent well the RQR members. A few days after his nomination, Dr Boissonneault was already engaged in Scientific Committee conversations, bringing new and refreshing points of view.

We thank Drs Palin and Boissonneault as well as all the members of the Scientific Committee!
