Artificial Intelligence Innovation Program (PIIA) 

Maximize your chances of funding your artificial intelligence innovation project!

Artificial intelligence and innovation

Today, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is having a tremendous impact, driving innovations to address global challenges and change how we live. In order to remain competitive and drive economic growth, we in Quebec must develop these technologies. Prompt’s mission, together with the other 8 Industrial Research Sectoral Groups (RSRI), is to establish and support a collaborative innovation ecosystem conducive to developing strategic economic sectors for the benefit of businesses, research centres and the Quebec population.

Since 2019, PROMPT has helped finance 82 artificial intelligence innovations. This represents an investment by PROMPT of $25.7 million.

In 2019-2020, 73 companies collaborated with 22 public research partners to consolidate Quebec’s position as one of the world’s leading AI innovation centres.
