What is the QCBS?

In 2017, the network connects more than 120 researchers, 700 graduate students and postdoctoral fellows, as well as many undergraduate students and numerous national and international partners.

The objective of the QCBS is to foster the emergence of an integrated biodiversity science in Quebec, the general scientific principles of which will allow the discovery, study, and sustainable use of the Quebec biodiversity.

The QCBS offers a range of measures and human resources to favour research development, notably:

  • A funding program is offered to QCBS researchers and their students (working groups, seed grants and supplementary bursaries for students);
  • A team of research professionals offers personalized consultations and training workshops on diverse approaches and techniques related to biodiversity science;
  • The annual symposium and training workshops allow researchers and their students to present the fruits of their research and to exchange their results with other users and future partners.
