The NRC at the congress of the Francophone association for knowledge (ACFAS)


May 27, 2019 — May 31, 2019 — Gatineau, Quebec

The annual ACFAS congress (in French only) is the largest francophone gathering of science and knowledge, welcoming thousands of researchers from about thirty countries across multiple disciplines. Since 1933, the francophone scientific community has been attending the congress to present their recent breakthroughs, stay up-to-date on the latest research developments, discuss current challenges, and exchange ideas with peers, associations, and participating organizations – all in French, bien sûr!

The National Research Council of Canada (NRC) is proud to participate in the 87th annual ACFAS congress. This year, in addition to presenting our latest discoveries in the language of Molière, we are co-organizing several sessions covering a wide range of topics. To register, please visit the congress website.

Nous espérons vous y voir en grand nombre!
