For an innovative
cyber resilient society

multidisciplinary forces are being set in motion

A strong initial partnership, driving a collaborative and open approach

IMC2 is the result of a collaboration between Polytechnique Montréal, spearheading the project, in partnership with the Université de Montréal and HEC Montréal. This synergy enables us to mobilize all of our resources to bring ambitious, innovative, and multidisciplinary projects to life.
