Mission

The mission of the Quebec Network for Research on Aging is to support interdisciplinary research on aging and to promote the maintenance of a critical mass of researchers, help increase overall research capacity, and stimulate the creation of research partnerships in this field.

The Network’s ultimate goal is to increase knowledge about the biological, clinical, populational, social, and societal aspects of aging. This knowledge can then be used to help promote successful aging, to prevent or delay the expression of the components of frailty and its harmful effects, and to improve the health care and services provided to the elderly.

2017-2021 Fonds de recherche du Québec - Santé Thematic Network Grant

We are very proud to announce that our evaluation is very positive and that we have obtained the maximum grant available under this program, $ 800,000 / year for the period 2017-2021. This will enable us to implement our new strategic and scientific programming.

We would like to express our gratitude to the Network's student members and researchers who are a big part of this success, as well as the Thematic Group and Platform Coordinators who have worked hard to produce a high quality scientific activity report and scientific program.


French McMaster Optimal Aging Portal

The RQRV's partnership with the Optimal Aging Portal (McMaster University, ON) is realized by the launch of the french McMaster Optimal Aging Portal. This opens up a new window of international outreach.


On February 7, 2017, the RQRV executive appeared before the FRQS International committee responsible for evaluating the Theme Network grant applications which were submitted in December 2016.

We are very pleased with the work done by all of us during the last FRQS funding period, which proved to be fruitful in outcomes.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the coordinators of the thematic groups and platforms for their close collaboration in the preparation of a high-quality application for which we are very proud.
