Since 2017, INQ Northern Days have been promoting networking between the various players in northern research in Quebec. Every year, researchers, members of Indigenous and non-Indigenousl communities, students, government representatives, NGO representatives and representatives from the private sector take part in the event to discuss the various issues, visions and recent developments surrounding research in the North.


2020 Format

This year's virtual format opens the door to a new pool of participants who have not yet taken part in INQ activities. We expect a diverse and engaged audience: an environment conducive to the exchange and sharing of ideas.
