What is applied research?

Applied research is the development of practical solutions for real-world challenges. To this end, it employs the latest technology and knowledge to create new products, services, and processes, or improve current products and practices. In 2019, Collège Boréal established a department of applied research that can respond to the emerging economic, industrial and social needs of the communities within the territory it serves. The research projects led by Research & Innovation Boréal can lead to the development of products, processes, prototypes, industrial design and marketing strategies, among other possibilities.
