In keeping with its 2019-2021 strategic plan, DESTL is working on setting up the Centre d’expertise industrielle de Montréal (CEI), the first phase in the development of the future Complexe d’innovation industrielle (CII), in Saint-Laurent.
The Center of industrial expertise (CIE) will enable businesses to acquire the knowledge they need to adopt Industry 4.0 digital technologies.
With the importance of leveraging innovation to ensure the preservation and prosperity of the industrial sector, DESTL is enhancing its support role with the creation of the future Industrial Innovation Complex (IIC). This complex will serve as a manufacturing innovation hub where industrial sector stakeholders can obtain help with their digital transformation.
The development of the CIE and its eventual integration into the IIC will be an excellent opportunity for businesses to define, test and build the manufacturing of tomorrow and thus contribute to the city’s progress and prosperity.
The IIC will offer a host of one-stop value-added services, in five distinct areas:
2019: To help Québec businesses transition to Industry 4.0, the Québec government, in its 2019-2020 budget plan, has earmarked $5 million over five years to support the Réseau des centres d'expertise industrielle (RCEI). Read the MEI press release.
2017: The Centre de recherche industrielle du Québec (CRIQ), in partnership with Industry 4.0 giant Festo, announces the establishment of Québec’s first cyber-physical laboratory in Saint-Laurent. Read the CRIQ press release.
