The Centre de Micro Innvation (C2MI) promotes strong links between the academic and industrial sectors, two spheres that interact and collaborate for the advancement and development of next-generation prototypes in the microelectronics industry.
The C2MI was founded in 2009, obtaining a $218M grant from the Ministère du Développement économique, de l’Innovation et de l’Exportation (MDEIE) ($94,9M), Industry Canada ($82,95M) and several privates partners (Université de Sherbrooke, IBM Canada Ltd and Teledyne DALSA) and several equipment partners as part of Canada’s Knowledge Infrastructure Program.
C2MI is equipped with over $135M of cutting edge research equipment available to its members. It positions itself as an international beacon in advanced packaging and microsystems. As a Centre of Excellence, its goal is to allow its members to foster the growth of the microelectronics industry through the accelerated commercialization of market-driven prototypes.
The Ie-Knowledge Hub Case Study on C2MI was filmed in late 2015. Participants include C2MI CEO Normand Bourbonnais, Teledyne DALSA Executive Vice-President and General Manager Claude Jean, IBM Business Unit Manager Étienne Lemieux, and C2MI Member and Aeponyx President Philippe Babin. Filming took place at C2MI headquarters located in Bromont, Québec, Canada.
