Alberta Innovates is a catalyst for innovation. 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. Alberta Innovates is the place where innovators, businesses and researchers can access cross sectoral knowledge and expertise, funding, business supports, networks and research facilities to turn their ideas into products and products into companies.

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.
