Institut national de la recherche scientifique
We teach the next generation of researchers to develop scientific, social, and technological innovations.
We find solutions through interdisciplinary research and industry or public and community partnerships.
We play an active role in Québec's economic, social, and cultural development.
Our research themes are intended to foster synergy and interdisciplinary collaboration among faculty members. By working together, they find sustainable and innovative solutions in areas essential to the welfare and development of Quebec society.
