Research program

The goal of the CRIBIQ research program is to co-finance innovative collaborative research projects involving enterprises and public research institutes that share a common interest in the development of bio-based products. Funding of such projects by CRIBIQ is provided in the form of non-reimbursable financial contributions granted by Quebec’s Ministry of Economy and Innovation (MEI).


Innovation is an important driver of economic growth in Quebec. In order to remain in the group of advanced societies and open up to the world, Quebec must create a climate conducive to innovation in both the research sector and the entrepreneurial sector. It is in this context that the CRIBIQ launches a new financing program to support young innovative companies with high growth potential (startups). This call for projects aim to support the innovation projects of startups that are active in the three industrial sectors covered by CRIBIQ’s activities: Industrial Bioproducts, Environment and Bio-Food. This program will also make additional contributions to the Startup Quebec program of the Ministry of the Economy and Innovation (MEI).
