About the Chair
Urbanization is intensifying across the planet, which is resulting in increased demand for new buildings and infrastructure assets. The Canada Research Chair on Sustainable Multifunctional Construction Materials intends to develop and manufacture sustainable and environmentally responsible materials that can be integrated into a circular economy within the context of the ecological transition.
The objective is to design and demonstrate the added value of materials with advanced functionalities that are designed to adapt to their environment and to climate change, to transform pollutants in accordance with global limitations and to respond to other emerging needs.Find out more
