Since its founding, multiple partners have been associated with GERAD and contributed to its development and operation.
At the financial level, that contribution takes the form of financing for operations and infrastructure. It allows to pay for example: employees, facilities, and equipment, and to finance scientific activities, students and visiting scholars.
The academic partners are the entities from where our members originate. They allow and support their participation in the GERAD events and activities. They are also involved as a counterparty in the industrial research agreements when one of their researchers is involved.
Research at GERAD would not be possible without solid partnerships with industry. These companies have contributed to the development of GERAD as well as to the success of its researchers by financially supporting our research programs.
