A Unique System.

Alberta Innovates is a new system for innovation that companies and researchers around the world agree is unique. Businesses, government, and universities collaborate to share resources, experts, and ideas across sectors. University researchers work together, unrestricted by academic barriers.

We invest billions of dollars in research through long-term endowment funds - that means our investments are there for the long term. And instead of needing to negotiate with multiple partners in industry, government and universities, you can access all the resources you need through one point of contact, one agreement and one system.
