The RIC will design and develop efficient powertrain technologies to reduce the carbon footprint of BRP products while training its employees and students to stay ahead of technological trends.

"The RIC is BRP's response to Europe's 2020 strategy to help it come out of the crisis stronger with a smart, sustainable and inclusive economy," said Gerd Ohrnberger, vice-president and general manager, BRP-Powertrain. "It is a platform for the exchange of creative thinking between universities and the industry to increase knowledge and foster innovation. Altogether, the RIC will drive the development of the region and support the Upper Austrian business community," added Ohrnberger.

Since June of 2008, BRP has invested in two R & D centres in Canada: the CTA, an advanced technology centre in partnership with the University of Sherbrooke, and the CDI, a design and innovation centre. To compliment these two facilities, BRP now introduces the RIC which together will cultivate a constant stream of more innovative, efficient and sustainable technologies.

The Regionales Innovation Centrum has a two-fold mandate:

1. To focus on designing and developing efficient powertrain technologies to reduce the carbon footprint of BRP products; and
2. To provide students and apprentices, through a partnership with the University of Graz and the University of Applied Sciences in Wels, Upper Austria, with top-of-line training from experienced people driven by product innovation.

"This merging of the distinctive strengths of European and North American talent has been one of BRP's greatest assets for over 40 years. In the years ahead, we will capitalize on this even more in order to fully participate in a new world economy; one based on creativity and innovation," said José Boisjoli, president and chief executive officer of BRP. "The RIC will help us emerge with state-of-the-art products with the capacity to change the powersports industry and meet our new and existing customers' needs," he concluded.

Over the past three years, BRP has invested almost €30 million (more than $CA 40 million) in new research and development infrastructures. The RIC represents a joint financial input of €8.5 million ($CA 12 million). BRP covered 75% of the costs; 24.5% came from the municipality of Gunskirchen, supported by the Upper Austrian Government, the city of Wels and the municipalities of the Wels-Land district; as well as a contribution from the Oberbank Wels.
