See below the departments of the college of CEGEP de Victoriaville actively participating in the MOSAIC project: ENME and INOVEM.


ENME (École Nationale du Meuble et de l’ébénisterie – The National School of cabinet making and woodworking), affiliated with the Cegep of Victoriaville, is the benchmark for technical and vocational training in cabinet making. Since it was founded in 1965, the school has built up a solid reputation among a wide range of companies. In addition to technical training (College level) in cabinetmaking and architecture, the school offers vocational training in cabinetmaking, upholstery and furniture finishing. The school also meets the needs of industry, with which it maintains close ties, particularly through the integration of its technology transfer centre (INOVEM), which provides support and assistance to companies in the wood processing and furniture sector. ENME contributes in every part of the Mosaic project, especially in the development of new and innovating training modules.


Inovem is a Canadian wood and related materials innovation centre affiliated with the Cégep de Victoriaville. Inovem’s mission is to support companies in the furniture and cabinetmaking sector in their innovation process. The Centre offers technical services to support industrial development from wood drying to product finishing by developing and implementing innovative solutions to ensure business competitiveness. To achieve this, the Centre relies on a multidisciplinary team of experts and a research infrastructure that includes state-of-the-art industrial equipment and three different laboratories (low environmental impact industrial finishing, digital technologies, and mechanical and climatic testing). Inovem offices are located at the ENME (National School of cabinet making) in Victoriaville (Canada). Interestingly, some teachers and students work closely together on research activities, giving ENME a higher profile and benefiting both organizations. As a woodworking R & D Centre, Inovem contributes to the MOSAIC project by supporting all activities in the project’s research procedures and the development of new training lessons.
