Propulsion Québec and Mila, two organisations committed to Quebec’s social and economic development, have joined forces to accelerate the creation and implementation of innovative mobility projects. This new partnership was announced during the Movin’On sustainability summit.

This partnership is the first of its kind to be developed with an industrial cluster, and it is a concrete step towards consolidating the artificial intelligence (AI) industry and the smart and electric transportation ecosystem.

“This was an entirely natural pairing given the current context, where mobility is constantly changing. A lot of people think the future of mobility lies in connected, autonomous, shared and electric vehicles. This means that our two specialized fields overlap in important ways, and that we can inspire, influence and complement each other’s respective missions,” explains Sarah Houde, CEO of Propulsion Québec.

As a part of its mission, Mila aims to contribute to social dialogue and develop applications that benefit society. More than ever before, the mobility sector is a part of that discussion, as it requires innovative technology to meet its environmental, economic and social goals. Propulsion Québec’s wide range of partners in the mobility sector open up tremendous opportunities for building connections between the AI research sector and the smart and electric transportation industry.

Both organisations are excited to work together, complementing each other’s strengths to dream up and develop solutions that meet society’s current and future mobility needs. Mila and Propulsion Québec’s teams have already begun laying the groundwork for their future collaborative projects.
