In March 2016, the Government of Alberta announced the consolidation of four Alberta Innovates Corporations — Bio Solutions, Energy and Environment Solutions, Health Solutions and Technology Futures – into one innovation powerhouse.
Research and innovation that leads to economic diversification, enhanced environmental performance and social well-being is a priority for the Alberta Government. Great ideas and technologies created by Albertans need the best innovation support system we can deliver. All under one roof, innovators, businesses and researchers can now easily tap into our collective assets – cross sectoral knowledge and expertise, funding, networks and research facilities.
We are still in the early stages of consolidation and are operating four websites. The following icons will take you to our existing programs and services in these areas:
Alberta Innovates has two applied research subsidiaries.
InnoTech Alberta offers a diversified range of scientific, engineering and technological research and testing capabilities, and the facilities to support technology scale-up. Their focus is to accelerate technology development and application and provide expert advice, technical information and scientific infrastructure to meet the immediate and long-term technical needs of the private and public sector.
C-FER works closely with industry and client subject matter experts to develop solutions to unique engineering challenges in the oil and gas industry. Their expertise is focused on serving upstream drilling and production operations as well as midstream and downstream pipeline operations.
