The strength of an ecosystem

To meet the challenges of the sector, Montréal InVivo has the privilege of being able to rely on the work of six strategic committees, aligned along it’s areas of activity.

The work accomplished in these strategic committees composed by diversified members and representative of the ecosystem, enables needs to be identified, impactful solutions to be co-developed and required actions to then be implemented.

What is a Strategic Committee?

A strategic committee is a strategic think tank that allows for continuous consultation and mobilization of actors in the field on issues and opportunities in connection with the strategic committee’s theme. The strategic committee members represent the LSHT ecosystem in all its diversity and are selected based on their contribution to strategic thinking.

Generally, the members of strategic committees meet four times a year. Members are consulted on the projects and initiatives to be prioritized in the Montréal InVivo annual action plan.

The results of strategic committees are presented in detail for the LSHT community when the Annual activity report of Montréal InVivo is published.
