MiQro Innovation Collaborative Centre Wins $14.1 Million Grant from Canadian Government

The Honourable Tony Clement, Minister of Industry, announced this week that the MiQro Innovation Collaborative Centre (MICC) in Bromont, Quebec, will receive a $14.1 million grant as part of the Canadian government's Centres of Excellence for Commercialization and Research (CECR) program.

This new grant, to be paid to the MICC over five years, is in addition to $83 million from the Canadian government and $95 million from the Quebec government announced in 2009. The investment, part of a $61.1 million program that establishes the MICC as one of five new Centres of Excellence, will accelerate and increase the MICC's level of contribution to the Canadian and global semiconductor industries. The grant will be used to attract top researchers and add resources at the centre to support the process of translating leading-edge research into practical, commercializable industry solutions.
