These researchers, librarians and journals’ directors possess essential and complementary competencies in knowledge production and dissemination. We are also privileged to work in close collaboration with Fonds de recherche du Québec – Société et Culture (FRQ-SC). Together, we are strongly committed to offer society a shared and open service, and make it the best digital tool of knowledge dissemination it can be,” says Frédéric Bouchard.

The Associates of Consortium Érudit (UdeM, Université Laval and UQAM) and the members of the Board of Directors wish to sincerely thank Ms. Dominique Bérubé, who had been serving as Chairwomen of the Consortium since 2012. They would also like to thank Érudit’s Executive Director, Tanja Niemann, and all her team for the work undertaken.

“Dominique Bérubé has steered the Consortium very well in a transitional environment, creating solid foundations for a new business plan providing further dissemination of research results. She has led the way to establish a first innovative partnership with Canadian university libraries and contributed to the recognition of Érudit as a Major Science Initiative by the Canadian Foundation for Innovation. We will continue this work by strengthening Érudit’s national and international partnerships and by increasing the Consortium’s support for the digital publishing of our scientists’ results”, claims Frédéric Bouchard.
