The Armand-Frappier Congress was set up in 1999 by students from the INRS-Center Armand-Frappier Santé Biotechnologie. Following the success of this first edition, the student researchers decided to renew the adventure on a biennial basis. This congress, which brings together around 150 participants in each edition, is an opportunity for graduate students to publicize their work through posters or oral presentations. In addition, for each edition, the Armand-Frappier congress invites high-caliber and internationally renowned speakers, specializing in current topics from various sectors of biology.

For this new edition, the organizing members of the Armand-Frappier Congress have decided to set up a job fair in parallel with the congress in order to put student researchers in touch with recruiters in the field of Biotechnology.
