The Royal Society of Canada (RSC) has published its list of new admissions for 2021, listing eight faculty members from the University of Montreal. Members are elected by their peers, and members are recognized for their exemplary contributions to Canadian society, both scientifically and artistically. Each one will join the ranks of one of the three academies of SRC, the Academy of Arts, Letters and Human Sciences, the Academy of Social Sciences and the Academy of Sciences.
The SRC also announced those entering the College of New Researchers and Innovators in Art and Science. Three UdeM professors are part of it. Members are elected for seven-year terms, and must demonstrate excellence in their field and be at the beginning of their careers. Highlighting intellectual, scientific, and artistic achievement, these appointments must be made within 15 years of the candidates’ graduation.
All candidates this year will be invited to accept their membership in the RSC at a ceremony to be held on November 19.
