The INRS Foundation

The INRS Foundation supports Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS) in its development and outreach activities. The INRS Foundation seeks to accelerate the growth of the INRS by enhancing its profile with decision-makers in the business and philanthropic communities.

The Foundation promotes strategic partnerships that help sustain cutting-edge research and top-level training at the four INRS research centres. It does this by building relationships, developing partnerships, and soliciting, administering, and distributing the funds raised. The INRS Foundation inspires alumni engagement as well as business and philanthropic support for INRS’s commitment to innovation and the next generation of scientists.
