Science communication in the digital age, economic spin-off from the CETA between Canada and the European Union, driver training, preventing and managing disputes for business leaders, management approach and vision… Some of the School's faculty members will be contributing their expertise on these topics at the Entretiens Jacques Cartier, from November 30 to December 3, in Lyon and across the Rhône-Alpes region.
First of all, François Bellavance, Full Professor (Decision Sciences) and Director of the Réseau de recherche en sécurité routière, will be part of the scientific committee for this symposium, which will look at the three key players in driver training: the trainer, the examiner and the candidate him- or herself. He will moderate the session on the theme of training vulnerable users, and discuss the evaluation of training.
Frédéric Bove, Lecturer (Entrepreneurship and Innovation) and Delegate General of the Centre Jacques Cartier, will be one of the speakers at this symposium comparing Canadian and French experiences on lawyers’ role and the value added by out-of-court dispute settlement, for business leaders. He will look at access to justice, in the session on alternative approaches.
Franck Barès, Director of the Department of Entrepreneurship and Innovation, along with Régis Goujet of EMLyon, will host this lecture on understanding the management approach and vision of Gilbert Rozon, Commissioner for Montreal's 375th anniversary celebrations and founder of the Just for Laughs Festival.
Adjunct Professor Sylvain Lafrance, Director of the Pôle médias HEC Montréal, will host the start of this morning session, looking at science communication in the digital era with some experienced scientists and veteran communicators.
