UQAR establishes co-supervision agreement to train marine science specialists in Canada, France


The Université du Québec à Rimouski has established a co-supervision agreement with the Université de Bretagne Occidentale (UBO) to advance the training of marine science specialists in both Canada and France. Under this agreement, doctoral candidates in oceanography will carry out research and training under joint supervision (and receive joint funding) from the two universities. They will have the opportunity to work on one of four projects on topics that range from macroalgae in coastal areas to sediment dynamics on glaciers in Nunavut. Students will graduate from both universities. This partnership agreement will also explore further areas of collaboration on the topic of marine sciences. UQAR
