Financial Assistance for Presentations at Scientific Conferences

Based on funds availability, the Research Knowledge and Transfer Office offers a maximum of $3,000 a year to research faculty members for presenting an accepted paper at one or more scientific conferences, if the professor has no other research funding for this type of activity.

One of the main objectives of this grant is to facilitate publication in scientific journals. Therefore, the Research Knowledge and Transfer Office expects the paper presented during conferences to be submitted to a peer-reviewed journal.

The Research and Knowledge Transfer Office awards funds only to one HEC Montréal professor per presentation, as either an author or a coauthor, and the funds cannot be deferred to another year.
