A new Director of Innovation at CRIBIQ 11th February 2021

Quebec, February 11, 2021.

Since February 8, 2021, we are pleased to welcome, in our team of consultants, Mr. Jean-Philippe Chenel who has joined CRIBIQ (Consortium for Research and Innovation in Industrial Bioprocesses in Quebec) as Director of Innovation. He will mainly assume the accompaniment of our industrial members and public research institutes in their quest for innovation in the sectors of the biosourced economy.

D. in Water Sciences from the Institut national de la recherche scientifique, Mr. Chenel brings with him solid experience in bioprocesses, particularly in the production of industrial bioproducts and the valorization of bioresources through fermentation at the laboratory and pilot scale. Prior to joining CRIBIQ, in 2010 he was Director of the Technocentre in Trois-Rivières, a technology incubator specializing in industrial bioprocesses and environmental technologies and offering technical and scientific services as well as specialized equipment for pre-commercial fermentation. He then became Director of the Parc Micro-Sciences Trois-Rivières, managing two business incubators, the Technocentre (bioprocesses) and the Novocis (Ti and electronics). For about ten years, he accompanied many companies in the start-up and development of their technologies.

The members of the consortium and its partners can now count on the know-how of three experienced directors in innovation in the industrial sectors of the biosourced economy, thus ensuring a service that meets their expectations. You can reach them at any time at the following coordinates:

I would also like to assure them that we will continue to make every effort to offer a high standard of service.
