Panel Organized by: Fonds de recherche du Québec

As the level of government closest to the people, municipalities make decisions that have a direct impact on all our daily lives and can form the starting point for major societal change. What are the distinctive features of this political terrain when it comes to governance and decision making, and what is the place of science advice, research and innovation in this environment? The panelists—elected officials, municipal employees and researchers—will demonstrate the unique characteristics of municipal administration and politics, and the research and innovation needs that arise from them.

En tant que palier gouvernemental le plus proche de la population, les municipalités sont amenées à prendre des décisions ayant un impact direct sur notre quotidien et peuvent former le point de départ de grands changements de société. Qu’est-ce qui distingue les villes en matière de gouvernance et de prise de décision, et quelle est la place du conseil scientifique, de la recherche et de l’innovation dans cet espace politique? Les panélistes – élus, employés municipaux et chercheurs - expliqueront les particularités de l’administration et de la politique municipales, et les besoins en faits et données probantes qui en émergent.
