- Bremen Institute of Canada and Québec Studies (BICQS)
Recently, the University of Bremen has joined the universities, which highly support and host Canadian and Québec Studies:
"The aim of the BICQS is to encourage and support Canada and Québec studies within participating disciplines as well as between them, both in the curriculum and in research. At the same time, it aims to promote and intensify the exchange of ideas at all levels, i.e. between university professors, lecturers, researchers and research groups, young researchers and students. It also aims to present research results to a wide public audience. Finally, the BICQS will provide the opportunity for contacts within Canadian and Quebecois culture, and for conveying knowledge about Canada and Quebec through events and publications."
