Emilia Romagna-Quebec: una alleanza che coinvolge sempre di più anche ALMA

A concrete cooperation between Emilia-Romagna and Québec on the topics of artificial intelligence and big data: thanks to a memorandum of understanding that also involves the supercomputing entities Cineca and Crim, these two regions, united by economic, scientific and educational affinities, are joining forces to face future challenges together and create synergies that foster innovation and development, not only at the economic level but also at the social one.

Martine Biron, Québec’s Minister of International Relations with delegated responsibilities also for Francophonie and the Condition of Women, affixed her signature, in Bologna at the Region’s headquarters, together with President Stefano Bonaccini, for this five-year agreement that provides for concrete collaboration in initiatives related to science, industrial development, agribusiness and education, to jointly address the challenges of climate change and digital transition, drawing on each other’s knowledge and experience.


The partnership had already been announced last November in Montreal at the fifth edition of the Italy-Canada Business Forum on Artificial Intelligence, organized by the Italian Chamber of Commerce in Canada with the Emilia-Romagna Region and Art-Er, which was attended by the Councillor for Research, Paola Salomoni, fitting into the framework of the collaborative relationships already activated in the past between Emilia-Romagna and Québec.

Within this framework has been achieved the renewal of the agrifood alliance through a further collaboration protocol, signed at the International Music Museum, between ALMA and ITHQ, Institut de tourisme et d’hôtellerie du Québec. Present for ALMA were President Alberto Figna and External Relations Manager Candida D’Elia, and for ITHQ the Honorable Liza Frulla, Director General, and Paul Caccia, Director of Communications and Business Development.
