Our partners: allies and sources of inspiration

Board members partners

To build a bridge between the business and academic worlds, to develop research programs tailored to these organizations’ needs, and to guide researchers and practitioners into sharing their respective areas of knowledge and experience — this is the essence of CIRANO’s mission.

Partners are key to CIRANO. Whether from the business, government, or academic circles, the partners are members of CIRANO’s board of directors. They contribute to the definition of the scope of its research agenda and sit on the various committees which oversee its activities.
