Through partnerships with the academic ecosystem in Montreal and globally, #MEET4IMPACT participates on an ongoing basis in several research projects relating to key themes that are at the core of what we do.
We find it crucial to continue investing in research as it strengthens our methodology and allows us to constantly validate and upgrade our own knowledge, how it’s applied in our industry and how we can then translate this into actions with our clients.
