Sherbrooke: a Hotspot for the Convergence of Life Sciences!
At the heart of the Life Sciences regional cluster, Sherbrooke is ideally located for research and business because of the critical mass of its research centres, technology platforms and complementary businesses.
The concentration of key players in Sherbrooke enables the realisation of a complete research project, from fundamental or applied research to product marketing, including pre-clinical and clinical research: a unique characteristic and advantage not to be dismissed!
Moreover, the development of medical technologies is evolving rapidly, notably because of leading edge businesses and research centres of the Sherbrooke University Pole, in particular the Interdisciplinary Institute for Technological Innovation (3IT), the Research Centre on Aging (CDRV), the Centre de recherche du CHUS (CHUS Research Centre) and l’Accélérateur de création d’entreprises technologiques (ACET – Accelerator for the creation of technological businesses). The Estrie region and its capital Sherbrooke were recognized in July 2010 for their SAGE-Innovation cluster (Health/Life Sciences) within the ACCORD (regional development) program.
