Under the motto "Sustainable mobility of the future", more than 30 Bavarian entrepreneurs and scientists attended the Michelin ‘’Movin'On’’ conference in Montréal.

A special highlight was a visit to the University of Waterloo. During the trip, new business opportunities and fields of cooperation opened up, and existing research activities with the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) were intensified.

The cooperation between Bavaria and Québec will celebrate its 30th anniversary in 2019.
