Created in 2014, the Hub for Research and Innovation in Advanced Materials, PRIMA Québec, animates and supports the ecosystem of advanced materials, a driver of innovation and growth for Quebec.
PRIMA Québec is recognized as the key player in advanced materials for its knowledge of the ecosystem and its expertise in supporting companies for a more competitive Quebec in several respects thanks to the sustained growth of the advanced materials ecosystem.
As a sectoral grouping of industrial research (RSRI), PRIMA Québec relies on the financial support of the Quebec government and the private sector to promote research-industry relations.

Printed electronics, for example, result in the development of advanced materials in the design of flexible photovoltaic panels, biometric sensors or the formulation of conductive inks, and more.
According to IDTechEx Research, the total market for printed, flexible and organic electronics will increase from US$41.2 billion in 2020 to US$74 billion in 2030. The majority of these markets are OLEDs, printed biosensors and printed conductive ink.
PRIMA Québec brings together in its community a large number of players in the field of advanced materials at the level of companies, research centres and key innovation partners. https://www.prima.ca/en/members/our-members/
Through its support and funding, PRIMA Québec helps boost the competitiveness of Quebec businesses by allowing them to benefit from research expertise.
The collaboration between PRIMA Québec and the French association of printed electronics (AFELIM) is an opportunity to share the resources and contacts of our respective members with those who wish to establish themselves in the European and Canadian markets or to associate themselves with European and Canadian projects.
