About the Trottier Institute for Science and Public Policy (TISPP)
The Trottier Institute for Science and Public Policy (TISPP) was founded with the generous support of Lorne Trottier. Mr. Trottier has promoted science and its use in public policy in Canada, particularly in discussions related to climate change and technology. TISPP provides research grants to McGill University faculty to pursue projects that utilize science in the development, or informing, of public policy. Each year TISPP organizes a public symposium that has a theme that focuses on an area where McGill faculty are actively working at the science-public policy interface. The public symposium is also an opportunity for TISPP research fellows to present their research.
