Do you know the REPRODAction?

Since May 2012, the RQR has been publishing REPRODAction, a newsletter that allows, among other things, RQR members to present current research underway in their labs. The target readers are  the public and industry.

An objective of this newsletter is to identify
potential opportunities, both from the perspective of researchers and that of the end-users. REPRODAction is published three times a year, in January, May and September.

If you wish to receive the REPROD
Action, simply send an email to j.blouin@umontreal.ca, or Click here to see previous editions.
