GCC PhD student Mahmood Zargar was awarded a Quebec Research Fund for Culture and Society (FQRSC) doctoral research grant to study collaboration in multi-disciplinary research units. FSQRC doctoral grants secure government funding for a three-year period and are allocated further to a province-wide competition.
Professor Samer Faraj's Canada Research Chair in Technology, Management and Health Care (TMH) has been renewed. Canada Research Chairs are granted to outstanding scholars and provide stable funding for career-defining projects with the potential to lead in the field. The TMH Chair was established in 2008 as a Tier 2 chair with the ambition to study how information technology is transforming work and the provision of health care. The Canada Research Chairs program allocates the grants based on peer assessments, and has reaffirmed the eligibility of TMH for a five-year funding plan.
