FPInnovations, the Laurentian Forestry Centre (LFC) of Natural Resources Canada, Université Laval and its Faculty of Forestry, Geography and Geomatics announce the signature of collaboration agreements aimed at developing the full innovation potential of the wood and forest sectors.
This new operational synergy is based, among other things, on the complementary efforts of research forces and the sharing of infrastructures and laboratories, in order to maximize the impacts of research investments to the benefit of the competitiveness of the forest sector. This sector is therefore becoming one of the first ones to align its innovation efforts to meet the challenges it is facing.
This announcement follows the relocation, last spring, of FPInnovations' activities and the pooling of targeted research efforts.
FPInnovations is a not-for-profit world leader that specializes in the creation of scientific solutions in support of the Canadian forest sector’s global competitiveness and responds to the priority needs of its industry members and government partners.
