The aim is to encourage and enhance exchanges between French and Canadian research scientists. Six French lecturers were chosen for this first series, each staying for a week on the UBC Campus.

Apart from delivering a public lecture, there were seminar commitments and informal get-togethers and this multiplies the level of exchanges and contacts; the French Scholars Lecture Series will be programmed between February and November 2013.
