Revolution Happens Here

Research linked to Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in Sherbrooke, takes place in leading edge sectors, notably in telecommunications. Université de Sherbrooke and Bishop’s University scientists are doing work that holds great promise for tomorrow’s technology. Sherbrooke is also a place where leading research concerning the quantum revolution is being done.

Sherbrooke businesses conducting R&D projects can access sophisticated infrastructures and establish win-win partnership agreements with the Université de Sherbrooke. These industry-institution network possibilities produce technical and technological innovations, for example the development and commercialization of the ACELP technology and ZAP, products of Sherbrooke’s University Pole.

Please note that Sherbrooke is home to one of two Centres for Topographic Information (CTI-S), linked to the Earth Sciences sector of Natural Resources Canada.
