The France-Western Canada Workshop on Ocean and Polar Sciences focuses on quantitative approaches and analysis in this field. This event is jointly organized by the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS), and the Consulate General of France in Vancouver. This workshop is organized as a satellite event within the framework of the France-Canada Joint Committee on Science, Technology, and Innovation, launched in April 2023. The main goal of the workshop is to identify shared research themes, to explore possibilities for new interactions, and to foster further cooperation between researchers in Canada and in France. It is also a follow up of the first event organized in Halifax in October 2023 by the French Embassy in Ottawa and by Ocean Frontier Institute at Dalhousie University. It focused on the Eastern Canadian research community involved in the “Transforming Climate Action” Research Program recently funded by the Canadian federal government.
