An investment of $960,000 for the implementation of a sustainable health innovation evaluation network

The CIUSSS de la Capitale-Nationale will be able to count on an exceptional budget of nearly one million dollars to develop the new Réseau d’évaluation de l’innovation en santé durable (REISD), an initiative that aims to showcase the expertise and know-how of Quebec researchers and entrepreneurs. This initiative will benefit from the support of Cirris’ Bureau des Partenariats et de l’Innovation (BPI) and will allow the CIUSSS de la Capitale-Nationale to position itself as a leader in sustainable health in Quebec.

REISD will accelerate the development of Quebec’s health innovations by supporting organizations throughout their product and service development process. Its role will be to align companies’ projects with the real needs of institutions in the health network and to stimulate possible international commercialization.

The REISD will be co-directed by Marie-Ève Lamontagne, researcher at Cirris and full professor at the Faculty of Medicine at Université Laval, Pierre Grenier, coordinator of Cirris’ Bureau des Partenariats et de l’Innovation, as well as Marie-Pierre Gagnon, researcher at VITAM – Centre de recherche en santé durable, and full professor at Université Laval’s Faculty of Nursing.
