In the context of certain courses, students at Cégep de la Gaspésie et des Îles, Carleton-sur-Mer campus, conduct research on issues submitted by our members, either organizations, companies, institutions or individuals. Called the Module d’aide aux collectivités (MAC), this teaching practice creates links between the community and college students.
The approach values scientific research as a means of regional development and CIRADD has been contributing to it since its inception.
Students present the results of their research each year in mid-May at a scientific symposium open to the public. It is a source of great pride for them and proof that their work can be useful to their community.
