In March 2023, I have won the Toronto competition, allowing me to participate in the national finals in HEC Montreal, on May 10, 2023. The event was organized by Acfas, the French-Canadian Association for the Advancement of Science. We were 21 PhD students from all over Canada, presenting our research in less than three minutes. I presented my current adaptive instruments workshops. It was fascinating to discover the 20 other topics. We were all motivated and happy to share together. This experience was not only rewarding personally, it increased my network and connected me to brilliant actors of francophone research in Canada. I will probably find ways to work with Acfas in the future.
