According to Research Infosource, INRS for a third year in a row ranks first for research intensity among Canadian universities without a Faculty of Medicine. In 2015, INRS professors brought in an average of $358,100 in per capita funding for research. 

INRS has maintained this stellar performance year after year on the strength of its 149 dedicated and competitive faculty members, its graduate students, its state-of-the-art facilities, and its innovative structure. 

With four specialized research centres in Quebec (Centre Énergie Matériaux TélécommunicationsCentre Eau Terre EnvironnementCentre INRS–Institut Armand-Frappier, and Centre Urbanisation Culture Société), INRS helps scientists understand and resolve strategic scientific issues in society and technology. 

INRS boasts a dynamic research environment where tomorrow’s top scientists get their training. Since the university offers only graduate programs, the supervision of master’s and doctoral students is not only a priority, but a key factor in its success.
