Collaborative research to accelerate innovation

Each challenge represents an opportunity to innovate.

To enable companies to develop faster, smarter and more competitively, collaborative research is now a must. Collaborating with research centres gives companies access to the knowledge of highly qualified personnel and cutting-edge equipment, while reducing R&D costs and sharing risks. A winning alliance to innovate more, innovate better.


Why collaborative research?

Collaborative research projects involve the participation of at least one industrial partner working with at least one eligible public research centre.

La recherche collaborative permet :

Access and harness the collective, multi-disciplinary intelligence of the industry

To reduce the cost of R&D (economies of scale, pooling of resources, state-of-the-art equipment and infrastructure, etc.)

To reduce the risk of R&D (cost-benefit sharing)

To participate in the training of highly qualified personnel, and to facilitate the recruitment of specialised labour by industrial partners

To contribute to the development of relationships and business opportunities

Leverage effect

InnovÉÉ is at the heart of the change and plays a key role in accelerating the development and large-scale deployment of electric energy innovations. Collaborative research enables innovations to be developed faster, more efficiently and at lower cost. Our funding solutions provide up to 2:1 leverage (4:1 when combined with another funding program). By providing funding that serves as a catalyst for significant investments in innovation by other partners, we are helping to transform the energy landscape in Quebec.
