Financial support of our strategic cluster
The management team of ReSMiQ was expecting the decision of the Fonds de recherche du Québec – Nature et technologies (FRQNT) pertaining to the grant renewal application for our strategic cluster. The FRQNT recently inform us about the decision to renew ReSMiQ for the next 6 years with an annual contribution of $432,000.00. During the renewal process the ReSMiQ received the highest score for each evaluation criteria and the highest amount granted by the FRQNT in the 2015-2016 contest. The center’s management would like to thank everyone who has contributed in the growth of ReSMiQ and provided a significant effort in the production of this application. More details
Microfluidic day at Université Laval (May 27)
The ReSMiQ is proud to support local initiatives for training and dissemination of knowledge activities. The latest is the microfluidics half day held at Université Laval on May 27 and co-organized by Dr. Miled, in order to promote research in microfluidics. This event was also sponsored by CMC Microsystems and Quebec Section of the IEEE. The program included a poster presentation session, invited talks offered by professors Miled, Greener, Larachi and Taghavi, a presentation by B. Mallard CMC, a keynote talk offered by David Juncker from McGill, and finally a panel session on the theme of the establishment of a first workshop on microfluidics in Quebec. More details

2015 ReSMiQ’s annual symposium (May 29)
We held our annual symposium during the 83rd Sawan from Polytechnique Montréal and professor Bahoura from Université du Québec à Rimouski. It was a real pleasure and with great enthousiasm that we welcomed our guest speakers, including professor Wei Shi of the Université Laval and professor Bahoura, and all 30 participants who attended this edition. On this occasion, members of ReSMiQ presented their research and exchanged views on several issues related to microsystems. Seventeen students participated in the scientific posters competition, and the judges were impressed by the high quality of the work presented. Furthermore, 3 of them have received awards for their excellent presentations. We take this opportunity to invite you to be part of our next annual symposium within the next conference of ACFAS to be held in Montréal at UQAM on May 2016. Detailed program
