International cooperation projects

Université Laval plays an active role in international cooperation by developing intervention, research, and training projects and providing technical assistance to other countries for the transfer and exchange of knowledge and services.

Today, the world faces multiple challenges, including security threats, the effects of global warming and climate change, migratory movements, communicable disease pandemics, persistent extreme poverty, and growing inequalities. 

Université Laval plays a strong leadership role in sustainable development, and through its efforts, it has been able to establish promising relationships and partnerships with the community.

Project financing

International cooperation projects often receive public or private financial support, but also benefit from official development assistance funding from various organizations, multilateral development banks, and development aid agencies, or directly from the countries and institutions supported.

Current projects

Université Laval has a number of major cooperation projects underway, most of them in partnership with recognized nongovernmental organizations in Canada and abroad. Drawing on UL resources and expertise, these projects are an opportunity to forge strong ties with our partners, share our knowledge and skills, and play a role in training participating students.
