Clusters of Research Excellence

Among Quebec universities, the Université de Sherbrooke is the only one outside a major city that was able to establish itself as a true research university. Our expertise is renowned across many disciplines thanks to the work conducted by our clusters of research excellence. 

These groups of researchers develop methodologies, analyze complex problems from multiple perspectives, and find innovative ways to improve systemic thinking in research. This is the prerequisite to conduct interdisciplinary research projects, and we excel in implementing this approach. By combining our strong disciplines, we explore emerging scientific fields and enable promising innovations that shed new light on societal challenges.
