Applied Research Modules for Practitioners

Transfer Tools

Finance modules have been developed by our team to meet the needs of our partners. This software applies in a practical and efficient way the research that is done here at CIRANO. These tools are user-friendly, and no additional software is required on the user’s side. Accordingly, installation is quick and inexpensive.

Thanks to their trial version, it’s now possible to try online each of our six modules. For each of them, an animated demonstration, an evaluation of the thematic studied as well as information on the scientific aspects are also available.
