The CSACS is currently working in collaboration with the CQMF in order to join forces and create a new research powerhouse in materials science at the provincial and national levels.

Please reserve this date on your calendar, Tuesday May 3rd and Wednesday May 4th, 2016 for a joint meeting between CSACS and CQMF. This symposium will allow our researchers and our students, across Quebec, to know themselves better and target possible collaborations. Stay tune for more information in the next coming weeks.

During the past year and following a request from FRQNT, CQMF and CSACS have worked together to prepare the merge between the two strategic networks. Through a collaborative spirit and by respecting the values of both groups, we expect this new entity to become a leader in materials science across Quebec, Canada and the World.
