INÉDI - Centre of expertise and research in industrial design

Cégep régional de Lanaudière, Terrebonne, Québec
What the facility does

Supports the development, optimization, and validation of innovative products, notably in the field of adapted sport

Areas of expertise

The facility meets the needs of small, medium, and large businesses throughout the entire product development process. To do so, it works with a multidisciplinary team of experts to carry out applied research projects aimed at designing, developing, optimizing, and validating innovative products. Industrial design at the facility is supported by three research areas or departments: additive manufacturing and rapid prototyping, connected objects and virtuality, and human-object interaction.
