Montreal International today launched the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) cluster of Greater Montreal (TechnoMontreal), which organizers say is intended to mobilize the industry around joint action to accelerate both the citys development and increase its competitiveness.

“This is a big moment, both for the cluster and for its partners,” said Jean-Jacques Bourgeault, deputy chairman of the Board of Montreal International, an organization that spearheaded the project.

“TechnoMontreal will help strengthen the position of Greater Montreal among world leaders in the field of Information and Communications technology.”

In order to achieve this, the cluster will develop initiatives to encourage networking among stakeholders in the sector.

Formed in 1996 as a joint initiative among the provincial and federal governments and the private sector, one of the primary mandates of Montreal International is to develop competitive ICT clusters in the life sciences, information and communications technologies, and aerospace industries.
