I am always interested in collaborating with the industry for developing advanced motion control technologies. Please contact me (alex.girard@usherbrooke.ca) if you are interested in conducting a research project in collaboration with the Université de Sherbrooke.

The main options to support such collaborations are:

  • The NSERC Engage program : 6 months – 100% NSERC funding / 0% Industrial partner – IP 100% to the Industrial partner;
  • The NSERC CRD program : 2-3 years – ~66% NSERC funding / 33% Industrial partner – IP shared;
  • The MITACS Accelerate program : 4 months –  50% MITACS funding / 50% Industrial partner – IP shared;
  • A research contract : Flexible  – 100% industrial funding – IP 100% to the Industrial partner.
