The Chair INFRA-S on social value of infrastructures was founded on February 28, 2023 by the Board of Directors of UQAM. The Chair INFRA-S offers a pragmatic approach, multidisciplinary and co-construction of knowledge in order to:

The Chair is in line with the objectives of UQAM and ESG, which aim to promote collaborative research, the development of governance and a sustainable living environment.
