Université de Sherbrooke has unique research infrastructure which are located in the main cities of Sherbrooke (Mont-Bellevue and Fleurimont) and Longueuil (Old-Longueuil and Greenfield Park), as well as within the Innovation Park of Université de Sherbrooke and Technoparc Bromont. In 2007, the Université created the Innovation Park to house research centers from collaborations with organizations, businesses and governments.
Many laboratories and research facilities have been equipped or upgraded thanks to funding from the Canada Foundation for Innovation, the Government of Québec and more recently the Knowledge Infrastructure Program of the Government of Canada. Under that program, the University received $52 million for seven projects on the main campus:
- Pavilion of Applied Research on Cancer
- Humanities and Social Sciences Research Pavilion
- Upgrading of hazardous materials deposits at the Faculties of Science and Engineering;
- Transforming freed spaces in chemistry lab at the Faculty of Science
- Upgrading ventilation systems at the Faculty of Engineering
- Asbestos removal and renovation of the ventilation systems of the Central Library;
- Increase the capacity of the grid.
The University also received the largest funding in Canada for the establishment of the MiQro Innovation Collaborative Centre (C2MI) in Bromont, for a total subsidy of $ 218 million (including the contributions of all partners). This grant helped build an ultra-modern microelectronics research building and develop the research facilities at the forefront of technology.
