Businesses from the advanced manufacturing sector can rely, right here in Sherbrooke, on more than twenty research centres, groups and Chairs and Sherbrooke’s University Pole through which much networking is possible.
CTA and 3IT: examples of collaboration
Situated in the Innovation Park of the Université de Sherbrooke, the Centre de technologies avancées BRP – Université de Sherbrooke (CTA – Centre for leading-edge technology) and the Interdisciplinary Institute for Technological Innovation (3IT) are telling examples of partnerships that can exist between private businesses and the Université regarding advanced manufacturing.
Thanks to researchers from the Université de Sherbrooke and other partners, Bombardier Recreational Products (BRP) confirms its status as world leader in the development of leading-edge technology for the motorized recreational vehicle sector.
At 3IT, inaugurated in July 2012, businesses have access to leading edge laboratories and research teams to conduct their design, prototyping and technological evaluation in areas as diverse as health, information and communications, transportation, security, and energy.
