Research and International Relations is pleased to announce that the Office of Sponsored Research (OSR) has returned to the James Administration Building, as of Monday, May 13, 2013.
Due to extensive flooding in the James Building in February, McGill temporarily relocated OSR staff off campus. Thank you for your support, patience, and flexibility during the period while we were displaced.
As previously communicated, the Tri-Agency (NSERC, SSHRC and CIHR) conducted a financial monitoring review at McGill in 2010 that now requires us to address significant concerns pertaining to the management of grant funds – more specifically, elements of McGill’s control framework for the administration of grant funds. A Steering Committee and Advisory Committee at McGill were created to direct and validate solutions proposed by the Tri-Agency Response Implementation Group (TRIG) to address the Tri-Agency recommendations.
Dr. Rose Goldstein, Vice-Principal (Research and International Relations), is pleased to announce that three leading McGill researchers have joined the Research and International Relations (RIR) leadership team:
Starting at 9 a.m. on May 21 (in Montreal at least), some of the world’s brightest young thinkers will have one short day to create, develop, and pitch solutions to some of society’s stickiest problems. This is the 24h de l’Innovation competition.
Every day, members of the local, national, and international media look to McGill for expertise and commentary on a vast range of topics in the news. McGill’s Media Relations Office (MRO) handles most of these calls and, as in all leading universities, publishes an online directory of experts that is made available to journalists to make their jobs easier.
We are writing to ask for your collaboration in helping the MRO update the Guide to McGill Experts, ensuring it is as complete and accurate as possible.
The Quartier de l’innovation is currently recruiting McGill undergraduates, grad students, and postdocs for a new Student Working Group.
The objective of the Student Working Group will be to seek input from McGill students on the direction, focus, and possible projects emerging as part of this important initiative for innovation in Montreal and Quebec.
