Breaking new ground

Abstract:
Mayor Tremblay was in an expansive mood as he welcomed Chair of the Board of Governors Peter Kruyt, President Lajeunesse, Vice-President Research Louise Dandurand and a small group of researchers and staff. He related with enthusiasm how, when he was Quebec minister of industry, commerce, science and technology, he proposed supporting the concept of "clusters" (grappes) to embrace the strong and emerging aspects of Montreal's economy.

He named 15 clusters that fall into four types: competitive clusters (aerospace, life science, information and communication technologies and textiles and clothing), visibility clusters (culture, tourism and service), emerging technology clusters (nanotechnology, advanced materials and environmental technology), and manufacturing clusters (energy, bio-food, petrochemicals and plastics, metallurgy and paper and wood products).
