The Partnership Development Activity (PDA) will take place from Oct. 15 to 20, 2023. Note that interested companies must apply no later than July 18, 2023.

  • Artificial Intelligence applied to industrial processes
  • Industry Automation
  • Industry 4.0 concepts and applications

There is a growing demand from large corporations for modernization and digitization of industrial processes in Brazil, presenting opportunities for Canadian companies.
