The Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières draws on its history and setting for inspiration. One of the largest of 10 schools in the Université du Québec network, UQTR boasts a Centre for Research in Lignocellulosic Materials, which reﬂects one of the region’s most important industries—pulp and paper—and the Centre for Quebec Studies, an homage to a city that traces its roots back to 1634. But trying new things is also a part of the university’s ethic. In 2004, it launched a podiatry program to complement its midwifery, chiropractic and nursing programs. Recently, UQTR added a new forensic profile to its chemistry program, the first of its kind in Quebec. A new UQTR campus in nearby Drummondville will open in January 2016. Notable research units include the Hydrogen Research Institute, a leader in the development of sustainable energy systems, and the laboratory ship Lampsilis, which conducts research on aquatic ecosystems along the St. Lawrence River. Researchers at the Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies on the Development of the Child and the Family have become experts in areas such as child abuse and domestic violence. The university’s Research Institute for small and medium-sized enterprises has received global recognition.
