Québec Circular Economy Research Network’s Post
The mission of the Quebec Circular Economy Research Network (RRECQ) is to support and promote the training, research, action and outreach of the Université de Montréal, HEC Montréal and Polytechnique Montréal in the areas of the environment, sustainable development and the circular economy, in a spirit of partnership and interaction between the three institutions and the community.
The environment, sustainable development and the circular economy call on researchers from all disciplines to address complex issues requiring the pooling of their expertise.
Under the impetus of HEC Montréal, Polytechnique Montréal and Université de Montréal, The Quebec Circular Economy Research Network (RRECQ) was created in the spring of 2014 under the name of the EDDEC Institute in order to federate the pool of expertise in these fields within its three founding institutions, representing more than :
- 200 research units (laboratories, groups, centers, chairs, etc.);
- 400 professors and researchers;
- 1500 graduate students.
With access to the largest pool of francophone scientists in Canada in EDDEC, the Institute covers the entire spectrum of scientific disciplines, from humanities and social sciences to economics and natural sciences, as well as engineering.
