Shedding light on the North

Funded by the Canada First Research Excellence Fund, the Sentinel North Strategy allows Université Laval to draw on over a half-century of northern and optics/photonics research to develop innovative new technology and improve our understanding of the northern environment and its impact on human beings and their health. Sentinel North is built around a major transdisciplinary research program to create new international mixed research units and research chairs, recruit world-class professors, and train the next generation of researchers capable of solving the complex problems of a changing North.
