Built around a multi-disciplinary research group, CIRMMT has developed specialized services through which its members are able to offer their expertise to a broader community including the private, industrial, not-for-profit, and public sectors. Such partnerships have led to numerous R&D collaborations, fostering the development of innovative approaches to the scientific study of audio, music media and technology, the application of newer technologies in science and the creative arts, and the creation of advanced research training environments.
