About the project Edit

ÉTS, McGill and HEC Montréal are drawing upon their expertise to develop the Montreal Creativity Hub.

The Hub will serve in organizing meetings and training sessions for professionals and companies around the process of idea-generation and innovation.

In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

The Creativity Hub will work in different ways. For instance, universities will be invited to take up challenges around applied research projects.

Professors will lead creative workshops to familiarize companies with the concept of idea management.

Citizens, organizations and companies will also benefit from access to creative professionals to stimulate the development and application of innovative ideas.

This approach will also be used in the university environment to study the initial stages in the creative process in greater depth and measure their impact on concrete projects.

What is the social value of this project? Edit

What is the potential of this project to expand and develop? Edit

Activities are firstly being realized in the Ideation Platform Innoluz situated in INGO I and then will be transferred to the Dow Planetarium once ÉTS has completed the conversion.

The conversion of the Dow Planetarium, which was bequeathed to ÉTS by the City of Montreal in April 2013, will contribute to the development of the QI (Quartier de l'innovation). ÉTS has committed to turning the existing public parking lot into a green space, and respecting the integrity of the building’s exterior.

What was the triggering factor of this project? Edit

The Creativity Hub is led by: Mickaël Gardoni, Professor, ÉTS; Kimiz Dalkir, Professor, McGill; Patrick Cohendet, Professor, HEC Montréal.
