In an effort to encourage and develop the next generation of tech-industry creatives, Ubisoft Montreal today announced the launch of the CODEX program, which brings together 12 initiatives and an $8 million investment in support of education. In partnership with 17 different schools and educational organizations, CODEX aims to engage students at all academic levels, with programs that include programming workshops for families, mentoring by Ubisoft employees and videogame-creation projects.

"Our mission through the CODEX program is to share our technological expertise and our knowledge of creative processes to prepare future generations for the challenges that await them," says Yannis Mallat, president and CEO of Ubisoft Montreal. "We are putting all our knowledge of video game production at our partners' disposal so they can be equipped to motivate, inspire and teach the youth that form our next generation."

CODEX will also work with a handful of schools and universities, including the National School of Theatre in Canada; HEC Montreal; École de technologie supérieure; École des arts numériques, de l'animation et du design (NAD) UQAC; Champlain College of Vermont (Montréal campus); Polytechnique Montréal; Concordia University; Université de Montréal; Université de Sherbrooke; Université du Québec à Chicoutimi; Laval University; McGill University and UQAT Montréal.
