CIRANO naturally positions itself as a leading research centre for the study of the socio-economic impacts of digital intelligence. It will thus be able to support the Government of Quebec and organizations in making decisions that are adapted to this new economic and technological context.

Digital innovation is based on the use of new tools from data sciences (e.g. machine learning, artificial intelligence), and uses the latest information and communication technologies to better leverage the information contained in ever-growing massive data sets (e.g. the Internet of Things and People, collaborative applications).
Digital innovation will continue to have a transformative effect on the Québec economy and sometimes even a disruptive effect. It is essential that public policies take this new environment into account, on the one hand to support and stimulate productivity and innovation and, on the other hand, to effectively manage the economic and social consequences of this ongoing transformation.
In response to these challenges, CIRANO naturally positions itself as a leading research centre for the study of the socio-economic impact of digital innovation. It will thus be able to support the Government of Quebec and organizations in making decisions that are adapted to this new economic and technological context.
This pole ensures a transversal link between CIRANO's various research themes. It connects researchers and partners to foster the development of multidisciplinary work teams. It stimulates discussion and exchange through meetings and conferences. Finally, it provides a link with many organizations, partners or levels of government.[ - ]
