CRIAQ supports pre-competitive research and technological advances from competitive research that enable companies to be more innovative and position themselves as leaders.

CRIAQ research projects must have a minimum of four partners: two industrial partners and two partners from universities or colleges. CRIAQ project partners share the costs, risks and results of the research projects that involve them.

CRIAQ’s role is to provide its members with strategic, financial and administrative support within these projects.
