Initiated by the two founding partners l’École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS) and McGill University to position Montreal as a bona fide hub of innovation locally and internationally, the “Quartier de l’innovation” (QI) seeks to be at the forefront of best practices in innovation.
This is the third edition of the “Montreal Summit on Innovation” (MSI) organized by the QI, whose two previous editions focused on aerospace and innovative districts. These high-level conferences aim to spark thought and debate between participants for the purposes of providing inspiration and identifying best practices.
For its third edition, the MSI will address the theme of “smart and sustainable grids” from a sustainable development and economic and social impact perspectives.
The Montreal Council on Foreign Relations (MCFR) was a partner for the first two editions of the MSI and will continue to be one for this edition.
