UQAT kicks off the construction of its research station in Notre-Dame-du-Nord

A few weeks ago, UQAT launched the construction of an agri-food research station. Located in Notre-Dame-du-Nord, Quebec, the Station de recherche en agroalimentaire de l’Abitibi-Témiscamingue will be built at a cost of nearly $8.4 million, laboratory equipment included.

Project details

This project has been strongly supported by the population of Témiscamingue, who collected $1M in a 3-month fundraising blitz. These funds are supplemented by investments by the Government of Quebec and of Canada totaling $7.8 M. "A significant portion of the monies as part of the fundraising campaign will support research initiatives conducted at the station", says Johanne Jean, President of UQAT.

When the station reaches cruising speed, the laboratories and the research and teaching premises will welcome close to thirty research scientists, professionals and support employees, as well as graduate students and postdoctorands. The construction of the station should be completed in December 2010.
