Overview

Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique

Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique (National Institute of Scientific Research or INRS) is a constituent university of the Université du Québec system located in Quebec, Canada which offers only graduate studies. It was founded in 1969 by the Quebec government and is currently known for its contributions to sciences, technology, and physics.

Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique Key Statistics

INRS comprises four key sectors. These are water, earth and environment, energy, materials and telecommunications, human, animal and environmental health, and urbanization, culture, and society. The university offers 12 master's and eight doctoral degree programs.

Other Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique key statistics include their approximately 800 students and postdoctoral fellows, 450 staff members, and 150 professors. The institute has facilities in Quebec City, Montreal, Laval, and Varennes. INRS libraries are collectively referred to as Specialized Documentation and Information Department or SDIS and they contain more than 50,000 items as well as thesis and dissertation guides, bibliography software, databases, and online tools.

INRS is affiliated with the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada and the International Association of Universities.

Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique Research

INRS is a research-oriented institution with four research themes namely biotechnology and health, water, geoscience and environment, energy, materials and telecommunications, and urbanization, culture, and society. They receive funding from sources such as the Quebec government, the Government of Canada, and the Canada Foundation for Innovation.

The top fields of Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique research are materials science, chemistry, and computer science. Their researchers have attended and presented at conferences such as the Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics in 2018, International Conference on Learning Representations in 2017, and the International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing in 2020.

The Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique’s most cited articles from the institute are Lefèvre et al.‘s (2009) “Iron-based catalysts with improved oxygen reduction activity in polymer electrolyte fuel cells” published in Science with nearly 11,300 citations to date, Itatani et al.‘s (2004) “Tomographic imaging of molecular orbitals” featured in Nature and has close to 2,400 citations, and Guo et al.‘s (2009) “ Observation of PT-symmetry breaking in complex optical potentials” that appeared in Physical Review Letters which has more than 2,200 citations so far.

There are four research centers at INRS, namely, the Armand-Frappier Santé Biotechnologie Research Centre, Eau Terre Environnement Research Centre, Énergie Matériaux Télécommunications Research Centre, and the Urbanisation Culture Société Research Centre.

In 2018, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research granted a total of $1.5 million research funding to two professors from the National Institute of Scientific Research. Around $918,000 was awarded to Professor Albert Descoteaux to study the parasite Leishmania and $627,300 for Professor Kessen Patten to enhance the understanding of the mechanisms involved in spinal muscular atrophy. The previous year, the institute received more than $5.6 million from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada for 11 innovative and strategic projects.
