After 10 years, the Research Support Program on Intergovernmental Affairs and Québec Identity (PSRAIIQ) is being transformed to better meet research needs!

Since its inception in 2008, the Program has supported more than 120 projects – whether research, conferences or translations – in Québec, Canada and around the world.

Recently, changes have been made to better reflect the pace and requirements of research and publication.

o   A dimension to be better explored.

–       Research centres affiliated with an academic institution and research associations can now submit a project.

o   A step towards the next generation of academics.

o   An incentive to develop structural partnership projects.

–       Projects submitted can now benefit from multi-year financial support.

o   More sustainable support for research.

o   Recognition of major projects.
