The first UMRsu networking activity was held on February 11. Over 80 people from some 40 companies, organizations, and university departments attended the presentation by UMRsu director Sébastien Tremblay in the lobby of the facility in the Quebec Metro High Tech Park. Attendees were invited to visit the operating room where researchers and partner companies presented five of the projects currently underway. The networking activity helped build bridges between the university, the business community, and Quebec City. Meetings to create new partnerships have already been scheduled for the UMRsu team.
