QUÉBEC, May 12, 2017 – Centre de recherche industrielle du Québec (CRIQ) enthusiastically learned of the priorities of the new Québec Research and Innovation Strategy, announced today in Montréal, jointly by the Premier of Québec, Mr. Philippe Couillard, and the Minister of Economy, Science and Innovation, Ms. Dominique Anglade. This strategy proposes collaborative efforts in research and innovation, with the aim of positioning Québec among the world leaders by 2022, and confirms CRIQ’s key role in the digital transformation of businesses and the deployment of additive manufacturing.

Proud to help manufacturing companies increase their competitiveness and productivity for nearly 50 years, CRIQ especially salutes the Government’s commitment to support the creation of “innovation hubs” and “4.0 technology expertise centres”.

“Actively involved in the Innovative Manufacturing Initiative, CRIQ intends to play its role fully as an innovation partner by relying on its many collaborations, particularly with the German multinational Festo, for the implementation of the first cyber-physical laboratory in Québec, seeking the development of manufacturers’ competencies and the achievement of collaborative projects. The strategies announced today are directly related to CRIQ’s mission,” declared Denis Hardy, President and Chief Executive Officer of CRIQ.

CRIQ is also delighted at the Government’s commitment to position Québec as a leader in additive manufacturing, by giving its support to the development of an integrated medical 3D manufacturing centre with CHU de Québec for the advancement of medical technologies.

The Québec Research and Innovation Strategy recognizes the major contribution of the ecosystem’s stakeholders and strengthens support for the educational and research institutions that play an essential role in the promotion of an innovation culture.
