The CRE is co-financed with the Fonds de recherche du Québec - Société et culture (FRQSC).


The CRE is a place of meeting and interaction for researchers interested in ethics. It is correspondingly a center of excellence for the supervision of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows working on topics related to its mission. The CRE supports collaborations at national and international levels. It also ensures that the results of the research produced under its auspices are used to guide the discussion in civil society and to guide policy making.
