Centre of Expertise in Intelligent Prototyping (CEPI)

Based at Collège La Cité (the largest French-language college of applied arts and technology in Ontario), the Center of Expertise in Intelligent Prototyping (CEPI) helps accelerate innovation in companies through an integrated and multidisciplinary approach to the rapid development of intelligent prototypes.

CEPI’s business model is based on a partnership with industry for applied research, co-financed by public and private funds, in which the intellectual property of the prototypes is transferred to companies. Through this initiative, Collège La Cité also responds to the urgent need of employers in the region for multidisciplinary graduates, able to immediately contribute to the development of the company’s products.
