About Aéro Montréal Innovation Working Group
The Canadian industry is facing increased competition from emerging countries, such China and India, that are investing heavily in their manufacturing sectors. In addition, the global competitive landscape is now dominated by environmental protection and requires the development of more energy efficient and less pollutive aircraft. Therefore, Europe and the U.S. are investing heavily in new technologies for these aircraft.
To maintain its position, the Québec aerospace industry must intensify its efforts in innovation. It was with this in mind that Aéro Montréal created the Innovation Working Group in 2006. Composed of 18 R&D and innovation professionals, the Working Group has established an aerospace innovation strategy for Québec. It is also identifying and coordinating support projects for its strategy in collaboration with other organizations involved in innovation to ensure that the efforts of all players are optimized.
