CIRANO is pleased to contribute to the Quebec Innovation Barometer

The Quebec Innovation Barometer, an initiative of the Quebec Innovation Council, aims to draw a portrait of innovation in all its forms and to follow its evolution through interactive data, studies and relevant analyses. Ultimately, it will be a tool to support informed decision-making and guide efforts to improve Quebec's innovation performance across all its regions.

CIRANO is proud to contribute to the development of this tool based on four pillars: economy, employment and human capital, environment and social innovation. Several CIRANO researchers have participated in the production of two publications on labour and human capital and on the economy.
