Climate change is transforming ecosystems and therefore the food resources provided by natural environments. For the communities that depend on them, food security is at stake.
This is the research focus of Murray Humphries, Director of the Centre for Indigenous Peoples' Nutrition and Environment (CINE), Professor in the Department of Natural Resource Sciences at McGill University and co-principal investigator of the WECLIFS project.
Institut nordique du Québec (INQ) and the Sentinel North (SN) research strategy are joining forces to launch a third call to INQ members for research projects to enhance Quebec's knowledge of the North and the Arctic.
New: the project proposals will be submitted in two stages. Research teams interested in submitting a project must send a notice of intent (NOI) to INQ by November 7. All NOIs received will be evaluated and the teams that are invited to submit a full application will be eligible for up to $10,000 to put together their application.
INQ affiliated researchers, it is time to register for the INQ Northern Retreat to be held on November 17 and 18.
This retreat aims to equip INQ affiliated professors, professionals and postdoctoral fellows for their northern research activities while offering a privileged opportunity for networking in a safe and friendly environment.
Don't wait too long to register as space is very limited.
Your research requires the measurement of dissolved and colored organic matter in water? LAB-O-NORD presents the UltraPath/LWCC long pathlength spectrometer from World Precision Instruments.
This instrument, which is affiliated with the Quebec-Ocean Marine Optics Laboratory, is specifically optimized for the detection of low absorption species in solution and can be used both in the field and in the laboratory. It operates in a wavelength range of 370 to 730 nm (UPVIS) or 250 to 730 (UPUV) and allows a selection of optical path lengths between 2, 10, 50 and 250 cm.
Lab-O-Nord is an online tool providing information on research infrastructure (major and secondary facilities, laboratories, and equipment) operated by INQ-affiliated entities. The objective of the tool is to promote research infrastructure and optimize its use.
Isuma is the Inuktitut word for "to think", but it is also an open access web platform that contains hours of video and media content. Thought, produced and directed by Indigenous people, IsumaTV is a way to illustrate their contemporary reality.
