With the aim of attracting and retaining high-level researchers working on relevant topics, the RSI can support research units and the hiring of professors; the long-term objective is to create a research network centered around the Institute. The Institute caters to the next generation of researchers thanks to the Henri-Paul-Rousseau Scholarship, offered to HEC Montréal doctoral students with exceptional academic records. This scholarship provides an incentive for the best emerging scholars to steer their interest towards retirement and savings.

Hosting promising doctoral and postdoctoral researchers for research stays promotes exchanges and the potential recruitment of young researchers. Further to this, and in order to encourage world-class researchers to come to the School, the RSI has implemented a visitors’ program. Short stays ranging from one to six weeks are offered to both experienced and up-andcoming researchers. Such visits provide an opportunity to showcase ongoing work, to maintain existing collaborations or develop new ones, and to interest the HEC Montréal community in issues pertaining to retirement and savings.
