Innovation is an important driver of economic growth in Quebec. In order to remain in the group of advanced societies and open up to the world, Quebec must ensure the participation of its researchers and organizations in collaborative industrial research projects that will generate the technologies of tomorrow.
To this end, CRIAQ, at the request of the Ministry of Economy and Innovation (MEI), is launching a special call for projects, the “PSO-International”, to promote, support and implement international research and innovation initiatives between universities, colleges, institutions and industry.
The objectives of this program are:
– Increase university-industry, international and intersectoral research collaborations.
– Increase the visibility of Quebec researchers and their institutions at the national and international levels.
– Foster the development, around R&D projects, of researchers capable of occupying a competitive position in the niches of the future for Québec.

Deadline for applications: 14 December 2018
