HEC Montréal Creates the NSERC-Prompt Industrial Research Chair in User Experience

On Thursday, November 9, HEC Montréal is launching its first-ever industrial research chair. The NSERC-Prompt Industrial Research Chair in User Experience is being created with the support of the federal and provincial governments and in partnership with D-Box, Deloitte, JDA Software, Mouvement Desjardins, Sobeys and Vidéotron.

Two of the School’s professors will be directing its research work: Pierre-Majorique Léger, Chairholder and Co-Director of the Tech3Lab, and Marc Fredette, Full Professor in the Department of Decision Sciences.

The Chair will receive total funding of $7.6 million over five years, in particular thanks to support from the NSERC and from Prompt, the ICT research and innovation consortium, whose main financial partner is the Quebec Ministère de l’Économie, de la Science et de l’Innovation.
