Noon Hour Colloquium

A total of 45 Noon-hour Colloquiums have been hosted since CRECS initiated the series series in 2005. The goal of the Noon-hour Colloquium Series is to showcase research findings or ongoing project lessons learned among students, researchers and community partners to enhance the understanding of the ideas, issues, and lessons learned related to CRECS mission. Presenters are responsible for engaging participants on a discussion around the topic. In the first number of years, the goal was to hold two such colloquia in the fall and two in the winter each academic year.

Over the past few years the series has flourished with an average of 8 colloquia per year and 25-30 audience members attending. Presentations have been made in French or English by CRECS senior or affiliate researchers as well as students and postdoctoral fellows. On occasion special invited international guests have led the sessions.
