We’re very excited to be working with ZIMER to develop open innovation initiatives for heavy industry.
What is ZIMER? It’s a unique innovation cluster that mobilizes a network of major iron ore and aluminum producers such as Rio-Tinto IOC, Arcelor Mittal and Aluminerie Alouette.
Thanks to emerging technologies, we hope to contribute to the growth of ZIMER’s main niches of excellence: production equipment reliability, energy intelligence and rail asset optimization.
In addition, this partnership will:
- 💡 Accelerate the collaboration of major companies with the pool of startups in Centech and the province of Quebec.
- 💡 Establish a mining and metals cluster in Quebec
- 💡 Enhance the commercial potential of products resulting from the work of Cégep de Sept-Îles research units.
- 💡 And to raise awareness of open innovation among businesses.
Through this highly promising association with ZIMER, Centech’s Collision Lab is proud to be taking part in the transformation of a sector that is vital to our economy, while also helping to raise the profile of our technology startups.
