The Québec Circular Economy Research Network (RRECQ) was officially launched in February 2022 during a unifying event with its members and partners.

Focused on action research and collaboration with user communities, the RRECQ is a value-added asset in the Québec ecosystem for developing circular economy knowledge, skills, practices and technologies.


Through its comprehensive and integrated approach, the RRECQ positions Québec as a leader in circular economy research in Canada and internationally.


Make available to everyone an environment conducive to the development of knowledge and innovation, both social and technological, in addition to ensuring a leadership role in the field by organizing scientific and networking activities that promote the advancement and transfer of knowledge related to circular economy.

The RRECQ builds on the collaboration between HEC Montréal, Université Laval, École de technologie supérieure and Polytechnique Montréal, with the support of CERIEC.

The RRECQ’s scientific program is based on a cross-disciplinary approach that fosters links and synergies between four research axis.
