Digital notebooks

CIRM's digital notebooks are knowledge transfer tools intended for the general public as well as researchers and practitioners. They aim to ensure the continuity of the events organized by CIRM through short articles, photos and videos, in addition to offering a summary of the featured activity and a presentation of its participating panelists.

More than a simple report, each digital notebook is designed to highlight ideas, questions, avenues for reflection, and potential solutions that were discussed during these meetings. The publications are written in the language(s) of the event.

This digital notebook further includes an analysis of urban agriculture by Athanasios Tommy Mihou (Paysage solidaire), and a foreword by Jan Doering (CIRM / McGill U.).
