Inaugural event of SECOHealth in Montréal Monday, September 18, 2017

Pr. Bram Adams presented SECOHealth as one of the 4 accepted projects during the inaugural event in Montréal organised by FRQ and WBI.

Four new research projects involving researchers from Wallonia and Brussels on the one hand, and researchers from Québec on the other hand, were inaugurated in Montréal by the Fonds de Recherche du Québec (FRQ) and the Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles (by means of the FNRS). Out of 140 declarations of intent, 60 full project proposals were received, and only 4 were selected for a duration of two years. Our SECOHealth project, focusing on the health of software ecosystems, is one of them. The principal investigators are Professor Bram Adams from Ecole polytechnique de Montréal and Professor Tom Mens from the University of Mons.
