Who are we?

Created in 2011 as the Partnership on Opening Innovation in New Technologies (POINT), the partnership evolved to the Partnership for the Organization of Innovation (4POINT0) in 2017. The team brings together professors from Canadian, American, French, Italian and English universities, in addition to partners from different backgrounds: governments, private companies, innovation intermediaries, associations, etc. Team members study innovative collaborative ecosystems through multidisciplinary and cross-sectoral approaches.

As a result of the meetings and research conducted in the early years, we noted the importance and identified challenges related to Canada’s innovation ecosystems. With this in mind, the team has recently reoriented itself towards the "organization" of innovation within ecosystems made up of a variety of players playing a leading role in technological development.

4POINT0 intends to answer the following question: How can Canada benefit from its strength in science and technology, build dynamic innovation ecosystems to keep abreast of these disruptive technologies and hence contribute to innovation and strong economic development?
