CUTRIC is a national consortium of private and public Members who lead the design, development and launch of low-carbon smart mobility projects across Canada.

CUTRIC is focused on the research, development and commercialization of intellectual property (IP) and technologies allied to low-carbon smart mobility nation-wide.

Our Members are leaders, doers, and forward thinkers in all aspects of mobility and transportation across Canada, North America and the world.

CUTRIC creates spaces across Canada for the following initiatives allied to low-carbon smart mobility:

  • Innovative commercialization projects that focus on “integration trials” over the long-term, rather than one-off pilots
  • Innovative early-stage research and development (R&D) partnerships between industry and government
  • Collaborative R&D between industry and academia
  • Learning and training opportunities for consultants and industry stakeholders
  • Networking opportunities (workshops, technical seminars, conferences, webinars)
  • Government outreach and lobbying efforts on behalf of low-carbon smart mobility that is technically-informed and evidence-based
