WITH OUR SCIENCE BASED RESULTS, LET’S UNLOCK YOUR POTENTIAL TO TAKE BOLD ACTIONS FOR THE ENVIRONMENT
The LIRIDE (Interdisciplinary Research Laboratory on Sustainable Engineering and Ecodesign) focuses on life cycle assessment and its applications. It scientific research laboratory attached to the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Sherbrooke. In addition to academic research, we support industry, SMEs, and organizations in their commitment to improved practices. Our main themes: buildings, energy, materials, waste, digital technologies, and more.
Knowledge transfer is the second mission of LIRIDE. Our work provides answers based on robust methods and allows the evolution of practices to reduce environmental impacts. Through all our activities, media and projects, LIRIDE promotes the spread aned adoption of the latest evidence-based knowledge in life cycle assessment and circular economy.
Our third mission is to train students and professionals in the best practices and applications of LCA. We develop and offer numerous courses for all undergraduate and graduate levels, in addition to providing professional training to a multidisciplinary audience.
