Congratulations to six trainees from the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre (RI-MUHC) who participated in the Cooperathon open innovation challenge! Forming a team to meet a challenge launched by the Desjardins Centre for Advanced Training at the RI-MUHC, in only 25 days they created a new organization called connecXscience that brings interdisciplinary science outreach to secondary students in Montreal.
