CeReNeM has a longstanding relationship with Montreal's famed Quatuor Bozzini. Individual links between CeReNeM staff and members of the quartet go back as far as 1996, and the quartet has been a regular presence at the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival since 2002, including extended residencies at hcmf// from 2011–14 for their Composer’s Kitchen programme for emerging composers.


Since 2016, several works have been created through a special collaborative partnership with the quartet, supported by the University Research Fund. This partnership has resulted in a series of performances in the UK and North America and through CD recordings on the Huddersfield Contemporary Records label.
