Funded by the Ministère de l’Économie et de l’Innovation (MEI), CRIAQ’s Exploring Technology program involves pre-competitive research projects at a technology readiness level (TRL) generally ranging from 2 to 5, geared toward exploring technology and training through research.


Projects in the Exploring Technology program explore the potential of emerging technologies to generate new application ideas and/or validate technology components through applied research. These projects are proposed and framed by the industry and then helmed by researchers.

PROGRAM DETAILS

This program aims to increase international university-industry research collaborations, to increase the visibility of Quebec researchers and their institutions on a national and international scale, and to foster the development, around R&D projects, of researchers capable of occupying a competitive position in the niches of the future for Quebec.

PROGRAM DETAILS

This call for special projects aims to explore the potential of emerging technologies related to the use of artificial intelligence in order to develop new applications and/or validate technological elements. It offers funding for applied research projects proposed and supervised by industry and conducted by researchers.

PROGRAM DETAILS

Financed by the Ministère de l’Économie et de l’Innovation (MEI), Maturing Technology program projects are industry-led and focus on technology at an initial technology readiness level (TRL) of at least 4.


Led by the industry, CRIAQ's Maturing Technology Program projects aim at validating or demonstrating the potential of new technologies to solve a particular problem in the aerospace sector or at demonstrating this technology in an industrial or representative environment.

PROGRAM DETAILS

To support projects aimed at SME contribution to the global innovation network, the Canadian and international programs and partnerships branch of the Science and Innovation sector has partnered with CRIAQ, as part of the Quebec Aerospace Strategy 2016-2026 of the Ministry of Economy.

PROGRAM DETAILS

This program aims for the transfer and adoption of AI solutions to user companies through a product, process, or service research and development project, in partnership with an academic research partner, in order to improve their competitiveness.

PROGRAM DETAILS

The objective of the program is to support technology demonstration projects for SMEs. The projects submitted under this program must therefore aim at the following objectives: demonstrating technologies in a representative environment, increasing SME leadership on innovation projects, and integrating SMEs into the innovation network. This special five-year program (starting in 2017) is part of the Quebec Aerospace Strategy.

PROGRAM DETAILS

This call aims to support small and medium enterprises in the development of solutions to mitigate the impact of Covid-19 or other crises requiring adaptation by Quebecers in fields related to the following activities: airport, air, and aerospace (safety, quality of air operations, airport management, ground operations, etc.). It also aims to provide the aerospace and aviation industries with quick solutions to needs that are new and unprecedented given the context.

PROGRAM DETAILS

The National Research Council of Canada (NRC) is collaborating with Transport Canada (TC) to generate scientific data to support the development of regulations for aviation systems used in line-of-sight (VLOS) / out of line-of-sight (BVLOS), remotely piloted aircraft systems (RPAS) and to identify technological advances, testing, and certification that will enable the safe operation of RPAS (also known as UAV, UAS or UAV) in Canada.

PROGRAM DETAILS

CRIAQ’s Supporting Innovation services are part of a desire to maximize the impact of support programs for aerospace SMEs and start-ups and their integration into the network.


CRIAQ's partnership with NRC-IRAP aims to help aerospace SMEs face the operational, commercial, financial and competitive technological challenges they face nationally and globally. It is part of a commitment to optimize the impact of support programs for aerospace SMEs, which play an important role in this industry that generates employment and wealth for Canada.

PROGRAM DETAILS

CRIAQ's Start-up Grant is targeted to Quebec-based start-up companies active in the aerospace sector. CRIAQ will award, on a competitive basis, 2 grants of $10,000 per year to support the technological development of 2 Start-Up companies, in a perspective where the funding contributes to increase the linkage of the product or service development with potential users and customers.

PROGRAM DETAILS

CRIAQ actively participates in the training of students, the highly qualified personnel of tomorrow, notably through the attribution of financial support for internships and student competitions. Each year, several teams of students enrolled in Quebec engineering schools participate in various competitions that are generally under the aegis of technical companies. CRIAQ wishes to support, through a sponsorship program, students who must develop prototypes to participate in these competitions directly related to aerospace.
