To strengthen the well-developed relations between Bavaria and Québec, a delegation of Bavarian experts from research and industry visited Montréal and Québec City from May 14-18, 2018. Led by the Bavarian State Ministry of Economic Affairs, Energy and Technology the visit focussed areas in aerospace, technologies in gaming, virtual and augmented reality and artificial intelligence. These sectors are of high relevance in research to both regions.

The trip included working sessions with partners from science, such as CRIAQ, McGill University, NRC, Milieux Concordia, FRQNT, and IVADO. Furthermore, highly specialized partners from industry like Behaviour Interactive, Bombardier Aerospace, Moment Factory, Element AI, and Rodeo Fx presented their work to the political, economic, and scientific delegates.

Some of the delegation’s members also participated in the Regional Leaders Summit (RLS). The Government of Québec chairs this network of partner regions for 2018.
