The Canadian government and companies from the private sector are currently funding five superclusters in Canada with around 1.2 billion euros in order to strengthen innovative industries and position them internationally. The aim is to create 50,000 jobs and economic growth of EUR 34 billion over the next 10 years. Three of the superclusters - SCALE.AI, Advanced Manufacturing and Digital Technology - are key topics at the Hannover Messe.
