RQR-CREATE Scholarship

ACFAS 2012

The deadline to submit a proposal for 2012 colloquium is November 1st 2011. Do you have any suggestions for topics and/or you want to get involved in the organization?

If so, please send an email to the network manager.

Symposium: hurry up!



You only have a few days to register to the Symposium! Deadline to complete the registration form and to reserve your hotel room: October 17th!


A novel addition this year: a one hour debate, on the Preliminary Program, that will focus on trans-generational effects of toxins. This will be an exciting opportunity for interactions between trainees and scientists from different laboratories to discuss on a controversial topic.


You are encouraged to present your research results at the symposium (poster or oral presentation), by submitting an abstract using the submission form. The deadline has been postponed to October 11th.


Students, you are interested in being chair or co-chair of a session? Some places are still available. Please send an email to Julie.

Again this year, the RQR is offering a pre-symposium workshop, Monday November 14th in the afternoon, also at the hotel Omni. The workshop will address knowledge transfer and will be followed by a 5 to 7 at the 3 Brasseurs including a first drink provided by the RQR. The program will be announced as soon as it is confirmed and added on the RQR website, section Symposium.


You must complete the registration form before October 17th. Funds are available for RQR trainees to support their travel to the workshop.
