Université du Québec has an active presence throughout the territory, which covers 1 667 441 km2. This enables it to offer comprehensive university education at the undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate levels, through a network of ten universities present in about 50 cities of the province. In addition to academic training, the network is actively engaged in research. Its institutions are particularly concerned with innovation in science and technology sectors that are linked to Québec’s territorial, economic and social specificities. Land use is also a priority and the presence of Université du Québec’s institutions supports the establishment of regional networks and niches that foster development and are inviting to entrepreneurs, ensuring the vitality and sustainability of the regions.
