On 21 November, the Institut d’administration publique de Québec (IAPQ) revealed the winners of their excellence prizes. A team of researchers from the Quebec Centre for Biodiversity Science (QCBS) including the IRBV’s Stéphane Pellerin, won the new prize for scientific collaboration, for their project titled “Des approches pour planifier la gestion des milieux humides pour assurer leur pérennité“.
This scientific collaboration prize, which was created in a partnership with the Québec Research Funds, is awarded to a team having contributed to a projet with a significant impact on the public programs and policies, as well as on the Quebec population, through the production, collection and usage of scientific knowledge and information in various spheres of research (such as health, nature and technologies, society and culture).
For more information, have a look at this video of all the nominated finalists. The QCBS project starts at the position 3:30 within the video:
