CREPEC : Research Center for High Performance Polymer and Composite Systems (previously known as Center for Applied Research on Polymers and Composites)
CREPEC springs from the uniting of three research centers. In 2003, to better answer to new scientific research demands from Canada and Quebec, members of the Centre for Applied Polymer Research (CRASP) from École Polytechnique, the Concordia Center for Composites (CONCOM) and the Centre on Composite Materials for Civil Engineering Structures (MCSGC) from Université de Sherbrooke took counsel together and created a new strategic cluster on polymer and composite materials.
Many researchers from École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS), Universités Laval and McGill University eventually joined the group to give form to the driving force of research in the province of Quebec.
CREPEC’s leadership is insured by highly skilled individuals in the areas of scientific research, technological innovation, management and communication.
