Philanthropy Week at INRS starts this Monday, October 18th! This year, the Foundation’s team brings you five virtual events focusing on the continued growth and development of INRS, bringing together about twenty different perspectives. Many special guests will be participating, including Mr. Luc Sirois, Quebec’s Chief Innovation Officer. He will join other panelists in the round table hosted by INRS CEO, Mr. Luc-Alain Giraldeau, that will kick-start Philanthropy Week.

From Monday, October 18 to Friday, October 22, participants from the extended INRS community (science ecosystem and philanthropic experts in Quebec, partners and patrons, scholars, financial planning experts, and alumni) will discuss different ways of leveraging philanthropy to accelerate the development and continued growth of INRS.

You’re invited to attend these virtual events that will take place from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. (EDT). Don’t miss this unique opportunity to learn, to get involved, and to help increase the impact of science on society, research excellence, student support, alumni outreach, and our pride in INRS.
