From October 17 to 19, 2022, the Entretiens Jacques Cartier (EJC) brought thousands of people together to take part in French-speaking interdisciplinary events in Montreal.

The Jacques Cartier Center (CJC – Centre Jacques Cartier) aims to strengthen interactions between the academic, economic, institutional and cultural communities in France/Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes Region and Canada/Québec.

The Entretiens Jacques Cartier event brings together 5,000 decision-makers and professionals who share the common vision that societal progress is linked to knowledge transfer and interdisciplinary innovation. The Entretiens Jacques Cartier event constitutes a laboratory of ideas and a platform for knowledge transfer between France and Quebec. This yearly event is alternately held in France and in Canada. The EJC program is based on a call for projects. Each academic event is co-supported by two members of its partner network, and they are in the presence of Lyon and Montreal residents.

As a founding member, the Université de Lyon contributes to the CJC’s activities by bringing together its member institutions.
The academic component of the 2022 edition of the EJC aimed to drive new strategic directions, by redefining new methods of collaboration and identifying synergies, desires and needs that are common to all members of the network in order to establish innovative communities
