Quebec Research Fund Science in Exile - Researchers Component 2024

This program aims to offer opportunities for research stays in Quebec to researchers in exile. Thus, researchers working in a Quebec establishment could welcome a visiting researcher whose country of origin is in the grip of an emergency situation (a person with professor status could also be admissible if the projected teaching task does not exceed 25% of the task). In collaboration with universities and a host researcher, the Quebec Research Funds (FRQ) propose to offer financial support for a maximum period of 36 months to researchers forced to travel due to threats in their territory of origin or who cannot continue their research or research training activities, following a major and sudden crisis. What is an emergency situation? For this program we consider that a country is in the grip of an emergency situation when all or part of its population is facing a crisis presenting the following aspects: situation which presents an immediate danger to life, health, the environment; situation which causes death or serious effects on life, health, or the environment; situation which presents a high probability of endangering life, health, the environment; situation which leads to the exile or displacement of part of its population; The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees lists here the countries or regions in emergency situations in which it operates. Beyond this list, the FRQ will endeavor to take into account the particularities and issues of each situation presented when studying the request.
