Call for proposals by Quebec Government to fund international R&D projects

I am looking for meeting to create new links between companies and research institutions from Quebec and foreign country especially in fields related to Smart Cities. That includes research projects and investment in technology development.
For example, every 2 or 3 years the Government of Québec lauches a call of proposal to fund international collaborative research projects. The program supports international research and innovation projects between higher education, research, and industry stakeholders and promotes high-level industrial research partnerships built on strategic international initiatives.
Priority is given to projects touching on some technologies and fields related to Smart Citites as:
1. Greenhouse gas savings
2. Renewable energies, transportation electrification, and clean technologies
3. Advanced materials and aluminum
4. Life sciences, medical technologies, personalized healthcare
5. Information and communications technologies, creative industries
The objective is to stimulate innovation projects between compagnies and research institutions from Québec and foreign countries.
