The mission of Innovation maritime is to contribute to the development of the marine sector and stimulate excellence through innovation. Innovation maritime aims to develop solutions for the benefit of companies through applied research, technical assistance and information distribution.
Innovation maritime wants to be the leader in its field, a leader, a visionary and before its time.
This translates into active involvement of everyone, listening, sharing of expertise and information, pursuit of common goals, collaboration and a positive attitude within the organization.
Characterized by the respect of the partners, the quality of the work of the employees, by their professional rigor, by the update of their knowledge as well as by their high level of performance and expertise.
Our sense of belonging and commitment to the organization and its objectives (dynamic coordination of efforts and actions to achieve results).
Since its creation, Innovation maritime has completed more than 350 applied research, technical assistance and information dissemination projects on behalf of or in partnership with the Canadian marine sector.
Built in 2010, the prototyping workshop of Innovation maritime was funded by the Québec government and the Rimouski Collège. It’s a 1,500 m2 workshop with an electronic design laboratory and an adjacent gas laboratory as well as a multipurpose room. The workshop contains applied research and prototyping equipment, some of which were purchased as part of this investment. This workshop is used to develop and test technological innovations to facilitate the development of SMEs in Québec; to demonstrate technology and familiarize IMQ students with new technologies affecting their profession.
Innovation maritime takes stock of its activities over the past five years and leads a reflection on identifying its strengths/weaknesses, reviews its position and defines its future orientations. An assessment of its CCTT status is being conducted and the Québec government has confirmed the renewal of its core funding for the next five years. This announcement reflects the relevance and quality of projects completed in recent years and also the recognition of Innovation maritime’s mandate in the marine sector.
Depending on the nature of the projects and the mandates that are entrusted to the research center, the teams can be remodeled to gather all the necessary expertise for their realization.
In addition, all this expertise is backed by strong skills in administration, business management and finance.
