Research

When excellence meets interdisciplinarity

In teaming up with the Faculty of Agriculture and Food Sciences (FSAA), you’ll get access to the multidisciplinary scientific expertise of some 100 professor – researchers who are world-renowned in all areas of the food chain and who oversee more than 400 graduate students. Research activities at the FSAA bring innovative solutions to pressing issues and raise numerous challenges.
Each year, no less than 180 businesses and 35 ministries or agencies from Canadian and Quebec governments rely on the expertise of FSAA researchers for the advancement and transfer of knowledge.
