PCIGR received the visit of an official delegation from French-speaking universities led by the Jean-Claude Marcourt (Minister of Higher Education and Economy), Bruno van der Pluijm (Ambassador of Belgium in Canada), Pr. Didier Viviers (Provost, Université Libre de Bruxelles), Pr. Albert Corhay (first Vice-Provost of the Université de Liège), and Pr. Bruno Delvaux (Provost, Université de Louvain).
Representatives responsible for research administration, industry interface, and international relations were also part of the delegation.
The visit was prefaced by a 15-minute presentation by Dominique Weis about the PCIGR and the funding opportunities in Canada. After the presentation, three groups were formed so that visits of the clean labs and instrument labs could be organized. An overview and brief look at the new CFI space was also arranged.
