May 15, 2009

HEC Montréal professors have been remarkably successful in obtaining grants to support their research activities from the four major funding agencies, i. e. the SSHRC1, NSERC2, FQRSC3 and FQRNT4 . All in all, 23 of the 43 research projects they submitted won grants in this year’s competition, for an exceptional overall success rate of 58% and a total of $1.83 million in research grants.

Jean-Claude Cosset, Director of Research at HEC Montréal, is delighted with these results and emphasizes the remarkable performance of young professors at the School. “Five of them won grants under the FQRSC’s Établissement de nouveaux professeurs-chercheurs program,” offering support for new professors and researchers. “It shows the success of the School’s recruitment efforts in recent years.” These five assistant professors are:
