Research, innovation and the dissemination of information are at the heart of INS Québec’s mission. Scientific activities are carried out in INS Québec’s laboratories and in partnership with university research units and private companies.
INS Québec carries out research and innovation activities with a view to improving the performance of high-performance athletes. Working with partners in the academic, medical and private sectors, the Institute’s scientific and medical personnel study, develop and create cutting-edge solutions. These scientific endeavours touch a variety of fields: motor learning, biomechanics, chronobiology, engineering, neuroscience, nutrition, physiology, psychology, etc.
To conduct its research and innovation activities, INS Québec relies primarily on the financial support of the ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur (MÉES). This support has also enabled INS Québec to create its Research, Innovation and Dissemination of Information Program (PRIDI). The Institute also counts on the financial support of other organizations, such as Own the Podium (OTP), the Institut de valorisation des données (IVADO) and Mitacs.
