Québec Government Office in London
Scientist in residence

Jean-Christian Lemay has been the Scientist in residence at the Québec Government Office in London since September 2018. There, he develops scientific partnerships between Québec and the United Kingdom, Ireland as well as the Nordic countries by helping innovative companies, research funding agencies and other government agencies connect.

The Scientist in residence programme is a pilot project by the Québec Research Funds (FRQ), the Québec Ministry of Economy and Innovation (MEI), the Québec Ministry of International Relations and Francophonie (MRIF) and the international youth office for Québec (Lojiq) to strengthen Québec’s science diplomacy capacities. Dr. Lemay is one of the first two participants in this pilot project. 

Jean-Christian joined the network of Québec Government Offices abroad after earning his Ph. D. and M. Sc. in the Department of Chemistry at Université Laval. Prior to that, he completed a Joint Honours in Mathematics and Physics and minored in German language studies at McGill University in 2012. In parallel to his work at the Québec Government Office in London, Jean-Christian is pursuing a Master of Public Administration degree from École nationale d’administration publique.
