This call for projects is intended to support innovation in the field of advanced materials by funding collaborative research projects with the potential to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in Quebec. The program seeks to accelerate the development of advanced materials in Quebec and promote partnerships between industry and the research community (universities and CCTTs or public research centres) while supporting the advent of innovative solutions that can offer a practical approach to the major industrial challenge of reducing GHG emissions.

Projects eligible for the INNOV-R program must demonstrate a strong potential to reduce GHG emissions in Quebec:

  • 50,000 tonnes of CO2 eq. reduced or avoided in the first ten (10) years after the product, technology or innovation is commercialized;
  • The MEIE/MELCCFP contribution to the project must be less than $20 per tonne of CO2 avoided.

Projects must involve at least one Quebec-based company with in-house production or research and development activities and at least one Quebec public research institute (IRPQ), university, college technology transfer center (CCTT) or public research center established in Quebec. Other partners such as NPOs, Crown corporations, public agencies, municipalities, companies outside Quebec and others may also be involved in the project.
