International Conferences

A special collaboration with Montreal thanks to the Centre Jacques Cartier

Links have been established since 1998 between the Saint-Etienne Higher School of Art and Design, and the University of Quebec in Montreal (UQAM), and then between the International Design Biennial, the centre of design at the Quebec University, and the City of Montreal. A system of sharing expertise was established; an example being the organization of Saint-Etienne Commerce Design competition, inspired by the Montreal concept.
Saint-Etienne and Montreal organize regular symposiums within the framework of the partnership with the Centre Jacques Cartier, and the "Jacques Cartier encounters".
