Research inevitably leads to the advancement of knowledge. But is this the only role of academic research?

At the UdeS, we strongly believe that this knowledge must in turn influence practices in society. We provide our community with concrete means to propel their research activities and solve complex problems. We foster multidisciplinary approaches and share a common vision and values.

This UdeS-specific inclusive model naturally contributed to our reputation for excellence in specific fields. Today, they make up our unifying themes:

The Environment and Climate Change
Digital Age: Intelligent Organizations and Training
Innovative Materials/Processes and Quantum Science
Health: Promotion, Prevention and Precision Approaches
Population Aging
Togetherness: Culture, Plurality, Governance and Equity
