Center for Interuniversity Research and Analysis of Organizations (CIRANO)


In five years CIRANO will be an indispensable resource for our private as well as our public partners and a major reference on the economic and social problems of Quebec. CIRANO will be recommended by the worldwide community of researchers on the role of institutions and individual behavior. CIRANO will play a leading role for the economic and financial education of Quebecers. It will federate 200 researchers in several disciplines all directed to the transfer of knowledge. Finally, it will become a role model in the world linking the academic researchers and the whole community.
