            Cooperation has grown stronger between the universities and science parks of Rimouski and Brest.

            Both centers of excellence are acknowledged authorities in the field of marine science and technology and major issues such as knowledge and management of maritime territories and spaces or sustainable transportation and sailing are at the heart of their respective work.

            The project fits within the framework of the France-Quebec fund for decentralized cooperation (FFQCD) and aims at creating a linkup between both centers of excellence to enhance both territories’ ability to develop, innovate and be competitive.

            Within this framework, Pr. Eric Deslandes, from the University of Western Brittany/European Institute for Marine Studies is currently in Rimouski carrying out a one-year study on marine bio-resources.
