The Rendez-vous du Savoir 2011: Gather, Recognize, Influence
Once again this year, Montréal International is a proud partner of the Rendez-vous du Savoir that will be held October 5 and 6 at Palais des congrès de Montréal will focus on the theme How universities contribute to business development.
This year, the Rendez-vous du Savoir will be bringing the business and academic communities together around activities aimed primarily at further strengthening the ties between the academic and business communities. The event aims primarily to recognize the wealth our universities generate and showcase their important contribution to society at the regional, provincial and international levels.
The Rendez-vous du Savoir is an initiative from the province’s leaders that aims at promoting the importance of knowledge for Québec’s economy.
