Innovation has never played a more significant role in Alberta. We are uniquely positioned to improve the lives of Albertans today and for generations to come.  

Our broad scope gives us the perspective to solve some big challenges. We span the full spectrum of sectors and industries – from health care innovations to smart agriculture and food production. From academic research to tech startups and artificial intelligence adoption, from cleantech to renewable energy.  

Five areas of opportunity 

We identified five high impact areas where we could fill innovation gaps, capitalize on economic opportunities and address provincial needs across multiple sectors.  

Our programs, services, collaborations and initiatives are geared to advancing artificial intelligence, clean resource technologies, digital health, the entrepreneurial ecosystem and smart agriculture.
