This research program is directed by Professor Maurice Tardif of
the Université de Montréal. He is supported by the
Coordinating Committee whose mandate is the synchronization and
the organization of the team’s activities and the keeping
of a global perspective on how the projects are carried out. Thus
the committee supports the projects’ head researchers and
informs team members of the projects’ progress.
Although there are already many collaborations among the team
members, the coordinating committee oversees the implementation
of different means of communication and ways of ensuring the initial
cohesion of the team (for example: web site management, newsletters
for team members and partners, the organizing of conferences, “live”
and teleconference meetings, seminars). Finally, the coordinating
committee initiates and maintains collaboration with the partners
through the Advisory Board.
The coordinating committee includes Peter
Grimmet, Diane Gérin-Lajoie,
Lessard, Maurice Tardif
et Marie-Claude Riopel.
