QC announces first two innovation zones in Sherbrooke, Bromont

The Government of Quebec has announced the location of its first two innovation zones: Sherbrooke and Bromont. The innovation zones will bring together the education and business sectors to stimulate high-tech projects and investments in specific topics. The Université de Sherbrooke will be a founding partner for both zones and will provide research support and access to initiatives like the Business Partnerships Group and USherbrooke’s accelerator. The “Sherbrooke quantique” zone will focus on quantum science and will house IBM’s fourth quantum computer – the only one of its kind in Canada – while the “Technum Québec” zone in Bromont will specialize in digital technologies. Journal de Montréal reports that the zones are expected to see total investments of $435M and $255M respectively from QC, industry, and other sources.
