Concordia is reimagining and reinventing ways in which we develop and dwell in smart, sustainable and resilient communities and cities.

In redefining metropolitan infrastructure, scholarship and civic engagement as we know it, researchers are paving the way for new and improved solutions in human mobility, energy efficiency, integrated design, natural resource conservation and more.
