The Honourable Maxime Bernier, Minister of State (Small Business and Tourism, and Agriculture) was at Centre d'entreprises et d'innovation de Montréal this morning to announce a funding contribution of up to $ 6.2 million over the next five years to support the launch of CEIM's Québec Innovationproject.
The Quartier de l’innovation de Montréal (QI) is proud to announce the appointment of Damien Silès as Executive Director. Mr. Silès, who is currently serving as General Manager of the Société de développement social de Ville-Marie, will take up his duties with the QI on July 16, 2014.
Consider it a cram session for change.
Starting at 9 a.m. on May 21 (in Montreal at least), some of the world’s brightest young thinkers will have one short day to create, develop, and pitch solutions to some of society’s stickiest problems. This is the 24h de l’Innovation competition.
The Quartier de l’innovation is currently recruiting McGill undergraduates, grad students, and postdocs for a new Student Working Group.
The objective of the Student Working Group will be to seek input from McGill students on the direction, focus, and possible projects emerging as part of this important initiative for innovation in Montreal and Quebec.
