Every year, the Montréal Summit on Innovation brings together nearly 300 people from a range of industrial, governmental, university, and community organizations.

These high-level conferences are a place for participants to generate new ideas, engage in exchanges and discussions, find solutions to specific problems, and get inspired by international best practices.

Six editions of the summit have been held in Montréal, and a range of different themes have been covered: the aerospace industry, innovation neighbourhoods, sustainable smart networks, health and the creative industries, adapting to climate change, and Industry 4.0.

Next year, a new format of the Montréal Summit on Innovation will be lauched with a view to growing the city’s creative potential thanks to the excellence and vitality of academic research in Montréal.

As the event’s main partner in 2018, UQAM will kick off this renewed format and organize the next Summit, on the theme of innovation and social economies, at the C2 Montreal conference in May 23, 2018.

C2 Montréal’s mission is to combine creativity with commerce in order to transform the way we do business. The annual conference also aims to inspire leaders to make a positive impact on the world. The partnership arises from this desire to make a difference.
