Business Technology Management (BTM) Body of Knowledge (BOK)

Business Technology Management (BTM) is a rapidly emerging trans-disciplinary research area and professional discipline in Business Administration. It seeks to provide an integrated framework for the strategic use of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and the digital transformation of organizations. This research project will develop the first BTM Body of Knowledge (BOK) and provide a systematic, exhaustive, and evolving framework for professional practice standards.

Where are they now? A Globalink research intern finds new possibilities in Québec

As a literature and social sciences student at Mexico’s Universidad de Guadalajara, Nydia Pando assumed her chances of getting a Mitacs Globalink Research Internship (GRI) were slim. The available internships in her discipline didn’t quite align with her experience and areas of interest. “I interviewed with a professor, but we both understood I wasn’t the right person for the project.”

Émission de gaz à effet de serre par les sols suite à l’application de cendres de bois dans les érablières estriennes

L’application de composés alcalinisants tels que la chaux ou la cendre est de plus en plus envisagée dans les érablières du Québec afin d’améliorer le statut acide-base du sol et la nutrition des forêts. Il est possible, cependant, que ces composés provoquent un accroissement de l’activité microbienne du sol, ce qui pourrait augmenter la production de gaz à effet de serre par les sols forestiers.

Etude de la vulnérabilité au stress hydrique de jeunes plants d’arbres. Cas d’espèces indigènes au Québec

Dans un contexte de changements climatiques, les modèles prévoient une augmentation de la fréquence et de l’intensité des sécheresses estivales. Or le manque d’eau peut gravement affecter la croissance et la survie des arbres, et donc diminuer leur productivité. L’objectif de cette étude est de tester la capacité de résistance de jeunes arbres à un stress hydrique tel qu’une sécheresse estivale.

Management of ecosystem services of Haute Mauricie region in Quebec

Forest ecosystems are not only a source of timber, it also provides other societal benefits such as regulation of water quality, soil quality maintenance, climate regulation and pollination among many others. However, these services are not static and they change across time and space depending on the nature and extent of the changes in land use and land cover. This study in Mauricie region of Quebec will examine how ecosystem services has changed over the past decades, how they look like at present and what are the possible future scenarios.
