INNOV-R

Do you want to make a difference in the fight against climate change and contribute to Quebec’s efforts?

By funding collaborative research projects between industry and public research centres, the INNOV-R program supports innovation projects with a high potential to reduce GHG.

The program targets strategic economic sectors that will enable Quebec to progress and achieve its GHG emission reduction goals more quickly.

“By spearheading technology projects that directly address the greatest challenges of our time, INNOV-R helps Quebec innovate and reach its GHG emission reduction targets more quickly.”
