Through its education, research and community service mission, the Université de Sherbrooke is a key partner in the Sherbrooke Innovation Zone project, which aims to foster the development of quantum science and technology.
Through various related initiatives, this project will serve to stimulate wealth creation in Quebec. It will help train and retain talent, attract new high-tech companies, provide the resources SMEs need to compete and win on a global scale, and facilitate the adoption of leading-edge technologies within large companies.
Three distincts sectors
Sherbrooke's innovation zone includes three distinct and complementary sectors to stimulate innovation, synergy and economic growth. It extends from the Université de Sherbrooke, with its Parc Innovation-ACELP / Université de Sherbrooke, to downtown Sherbrooke, where the entrepreneurial and innovation district is currently being developed, including the Cégep de Sherbrooke sector.
It also includes the requalification of a former industrial zone on the shore of Lac-des-Nations, which will become a destination for innovative manufacturing companies.
