France-Canada partnership shows shared commitment to talent development and economic growth

Students in France and Canada to experience research and professional development


Mitacs is partnering with Communauté Université Grenoble Alpes (ComUE UGA) to enable French and Canadian students to take part in research internships in the other country through Mitacs programs.

The five-year agreement reinforces France-Canada relationships and supports research collaboration and development between the French higher education institution and collaborating Canadian academic institutions.

Mitacs’s Globalink and Accelerate programs offer undergraduate and graduate students, respectively, the opportunity to carry out supervised research projects at participating Canadian universities or at ComUE UGA.

Through the partnership, up to 50 two-way projects will be supported annually across all participating Globalink and Accelerate research internship programs. The French institution is one of the top research-focused universities in France.

With additional benefits such as training, mentoring, and cultural activities, the internships provide students with advanced professional skills and an international network of research collaborators.
