The projects coordinated by MIO can be found here:



Forge links between academia, industry and government and leverage the centre’s expertise in High Performance Computing, Artificial Intelligence and Data Science to ensure the sustainability of the centre and enhance the research management structure of the centre by optimizing the mobilization of resources and personnel to be engaged in the centre’s innovation programs.





Establish CaSToRC as a one-stop shop for local academic, industrial and government stakeholders to integrate HPC and data science approaches in their workflows.
