Data is the raw material of every researcher.

By manipulating and analyzing data, researchers can extract new information and knowledge that helps advance science.

To fulfill its mission, PULSAR wishes to expedite the discovery of knowledge about health and well-being. And to achieve this, it’s important to provide better access to data available for research purposes.

That is why PULSAR has partnered with VALERIA, a Université Laval initiative offering cutting-edge IT infrastructure and a centre of expertise in data science. Using VALERIA’s “Data discovery” service, PULSAR users will be able to collect and share research data through a single structured catalogue. 

Users can search Données Québec open data sets belonging to different municipalities and departments across the province. The “Data discovery” service will evolve over time, with the ability to perform research using data sets produced by projects carried out with PULSAR as well as data sets from other research projects.
