major part of this amount coming from outside sources, such as
governmental granting agencies. UQAM encourages multidisciplinary
research, the grouping of activities, and the pooling of
resources in setting up researcher support structures, such as
research laboratories and centres.These highly successful
organizations foster researcher collaboration with both the
private and public sectors through teaching and research chairs,
which are financed either by national research councils or by
private and public sources.

Environmental Science, the Institute for Feminist Research and

forged links with industry and business. The University has
carried out many research projects in collaboration with the
private sector. Through its tailored training, UQAM provides
groups of adults in business with non-credit educational
activities that meet specific training needs left unanswered by
regular programs. The University's many graduates further
strengthen ties to the socioeconomic community.

UQAM fosters interuniversity collaboration through the creation
of joint programs with other universities in the province in an

that their programs are complementary. In addition, UQAM is
