Intersectoral student committee

The Intersectoral Student Committee (CIE) is a statutory committee common to the boards of directors of the Fonds de recherche du Québec (FRQ) – Nature et technologies, Santé et Société et culture. Its mandate is to advise the chief scientist of Quebec and the boards of directors of the FRQs by identifying strategies to promote the accessibility of research funding, optimize the potential of the next generation as well as enhance its influence and its impact on the society.

Research groups

The term research grouping (RR) includes strategic groupings (hardware infrastructure component, researcher grouping component, center form and network form), innovation networks, research centers, thematic networks and university institutes and affiliated centers. academics funded by the FRQNT, the FRQS and the FRQSC. In its new strategic planning for 2020-2022, the CIE has targeted the challenge of strengthening the potential, talents and implications of the next generation of researchers according to its aspirations. It is according to this vision that the CIE is currently undertaking consultations in order to enhance the role of the next generation within all of the research groups funded by the FRQ. The results of these consultations will serve as a basis for developing courses of action for various stakeholders, including the FRQ and research groups. In the question headings, the term “researcher” will be used to refer to researchers, co-researchers or affiliated members and the term “succession in research” will be used to refer to students and postdoctoral fellows affiliated with RR RR.

The survey covers the following 4 dimensions:

Status: Method of affiliation of young researchers in RR

Support: What RRs can do for their next generation of researchers (structure, form and accessibility)

Implication: What the next generation of researchers can do for their RRs (participation, involvement and role)

Governance: Place of the next generation in research in decision-making related to their RR
