TWO WEB NOVELTIES FOR DÉFI INNOVATION ESTRIE
SHERBROOKE, October 2, 2014 – This fall, Défi Innovation Estrie will be featuring two major novelties on its Web site. First, Défi Innovation Estrie will now reach a broader public through the English-language version of its web site, in addition to launching an entirely new section: the “Collaboration Zone”.
A Bilingual Site
In order to better fulfill its mandate of informing manufacturers in the Eastern Townships region and making them aware about innovation-related topics, Défi Innovation Estrie has broadened its Web platform to offer English-language content. Now, English-speaking customers will have access to the same resources, including news about innovations, events that shouldn’t be missed, relevant training, and information on resources available to SMBs. This will enhance access to assistance and provide a better fit with businesses ready to meet the challenges of innovation.
Businesses in the Eastern Townships now have “, a section on the Défi Innovation Estrie Web site on which they can submit their requests about their innovative projects in complete confidence 24 hours a day. The Défi team can then meet with company representatives and analyze their needs in order to determine how Défi can best help them accelerate their project ; through direct support, ressources research (partners, financial,…), etc. Also, for those who would want to multiply the possibilities, Défi Innovation Estrie offers its clients to use its own open-innovation portal space on Novacentris. Indeed, through the Novacentris portal, Défi’s clients can have access to a large forum on which actual technical problems can be publicly presented to a broader community of researchers and experts ready to offer novel solutions.
These new features fit into Défi Innovation Estrie’s vision of continuous improvement in order to always better serve its customers. In addition to these new Web tools, the public can also follow Défi news on social media such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Finally, Défi Innovation Estrie’s activities are also being deployed elsewhere than on social media, including “Mardis de l’innovation” (Innovation Tuesdays), training programs, and coaching.
