Your challenges, our motivation

The Computer Research Institute of Montreal (CRIM) is a leading center for applied research and cutting-edge expertise in artificial intelligence and information technology. It generates concrete results and serves as a strategic partner for organizations focused on innovation.

CRIM creates socio-economic value from scientific and technological advances through:

  • Support: providing companies access to experts who answer scientific and technological questions.
  • Applied research: contributing to science development through scientific and technological advances.
  • Experimental development: enabling organizations to reduce technological uncertainties and improve the time to market of their products based on their actual needs. Knowledge transfer is part of CRIM’s approach to boosting client autonomy.

CRIM is a non-profit organization that relies on many financial partners, particularly Quebec’s Ministère de l’Économie, de l’Innovation et de l’Énergie/Ministry of Economy and Innovation. Serving Quebec businesses and organizations for more than 35 years, CRIM consistently pursues its role as an economic lever by developing specialized tools, delivering structuring technologies to clients and proactively sharing the best practices and the latest digital innovations.
