Hexagram initiates a France-Québec cooperation project

The Hexagram Network is a proud laureate of the France-Quebec 2023-2025 cooperation program for the implementation of new research-creation networks in arts and sciences between the Toulouse region and Quebec. Entitled “Creativity beyond human in arts and sciences”, this project promotes collaboration between members from Hexagram partner universities and the Passerelle Art-Science-Technologie supported by TRAS (Transversale des Réseaux Arts-Sciences), the doctoral school @llpha of Université Jean-Jaurès, the Quai des Savoirs in Toulouse, the INP Purpan (École d’Ingénieurs Purpan), INRAE (Institut national de recherche pour l’agriculture, l’alimentation et l’environnement) and IRIT (Institut de recherche en informatique de Toulouse). 

The program of activities will include four exchange visits, two to Montreal and two to Toulouse, to facilitate networking between researchers and creators, to carry out research-creation residencies, and to organize study days, notably in the context of Hexagram’s Rencontres interdisciplinaires, which will take place in Montreal in winter 2024. From May 9 to 14, six Hexagram co-investigators and student members from UQAM, Concordia University and Université de Montréal will participate in the first visit to Toulouse.  

In line with Hexagram’s mission for the international outreach of research-creation (Hexa_OUT chapter of the 2020-2027 program), this project expands its network of collaborators in France beyond the Parisian region, where several partnerships have been established in the recent years. This project is supported by the Ministère des Relations internationales et de la Francophonie du Québec and the Ministère de l’Europe et des Affaires étrangères de la République française, in the framework of the Commission permanente de coopération franco-québécoise (CPCFQ).
