CIRAIG – Interuniversity Research Centre for the Life Cycle of Products, Processes and Services
The Interuniversity Research Centre for the Life Cycle of Products, Processes and Services (CIRAIG) was founded in 2001, launched under the leadership of École Polytechnique de Montréal in collaboration with Université de Montréal and HEC Montréal. The CIRAIG was created to meet the demands of industry and governments to develop leading edge academic expertise in sustainable development tools.
The CIRAIG pools and provides the key strengths of Quebec and Canadian universities in the fields of life cycle assessment (LCA) and life cycle management (LCM). Since its foundation, seven other universities have become collaborating members: École de technologie supérieure, Université de Sherbrooke, Université du Québec à Chicoutimi, Université du Québec à Montréal, Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières, Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue and Université Laval.
