UQAR to manage new Maritime Quebec Network

June 1, 2016

L’Université de Québec à Rimouski will manage the new Maritime Quebec Network set up by the Quebec government as a part of QC’s maritime strategy, reports ICI Radio Canada. The network will reportedly be a place for sharing and initiating research produced by stakeholders in a variety of sectors affected by maritime issues. UQAR is the natural choice for managing this network, according to Jean D’Amour, QC Minister for Maritime Affairs, as the network intends to research key elements of maritime development in Quebec. The network will be fully operational in the fall with a budget of $3.3 M over 3 years. ICI Radio Canada
