Sentinel North Student Association

Established in the Fall of 2017, the Sentinel North Student Association (Association étudiante de Sentinelle Nord - AÉSN) aims to strengthen the sense of belonging to the Sentinel North community and foster the development of a transdisciplinary network of contacts.


More precisely, the Association commits to:

  • Broadcasting information relevant to students evolving within Sentinel North
  • Connecting Sentinel North students with each other
  • Planning social and educative activities
  • Representing students in the decision-making processes of Sentinel North



Pinte Sentinelle Nord

The Sentinel North Student Association invites you to the first Pinte Sentinelle Nord, which will take place on April 5, 2018 at La Ninkasi bar in Quebec City (811 Saint-Jean Street) from 7 pm to 9 pm. This science outreach activity is open to the public and aims to present the research of Thematic Project 3: Microbiomes: sentinels of the northern environment and human health through a series of conferences by the researchers at the heart of the projects.
