International collaboration program NeuroNex 2019 results



September 11th, 2020

The Office of the Chief Scientist of Quebec and the Fonds de recherché du Québec are pleased to announce the results as part of the NeuroNex Network working in the fields of neuroscience and neurotechnology. A program in international collaboration and in partnership with the US National Science Foundation (NSF), CIHR Institute of Neurosciences, Mental Health and Addiction (INMHA), Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), and United Kingdom Research and Innovation Medical Research Council (UKRI-MRC).

This program has made it possible, among other things, to multiply international efforts by forming vast research networks in neuroscience / technology, but also to mobilize interdisciplinary collaborations between researchers in fields covered by the Fonds de recherche du Québec - Santé (FRQS) and the Fonds de recherche du Québec - Nature et technologies (FRQNT).

The funds invested by the FRQS within the framework of the NeuroNex 2019 program total an amount of nearly $ 2.5 M, and this for the financing of the Quebec component of the International Research Groups (IRGs). To this amount is added a contribution of $ 2.5M from CIHR for all of Canada.
