The Centre for Interdisciplinary Research on Montreal (CIRM) brings together researchers from several Quebec institutions of higher learning for the purpose of contributing to a better understanding of the city through interdisciplinary research in areas such as the economy, health, language, governance, history, and culture. The transfer of this knowledge to society and to its citizens is equally at the heart of the CIRM’s mandate. These objectives seek to ensure that Montreal takes full advantage of local universities and the talents that they foster.
