Alberta Innovates develops and manages funding programs focused on the agriculture, food and forest sectors. These programs are aligned with government priorities and targeted to various stages of the innovation spectrum. They range from discovery of new knowledge to application and commercialization.

Alberta Innovates invests millions of dollars a year in health research and innovation spanning activity from the lab to the bedside to the community. Our funding programs emphasize collaborative research and innovation activity and target Albertans’ health priorities. Applications to funding competitions are reviewed by global and community experts to ensure top quality activity with the greatest promise of impact is supported.

Alberta Innovates invests in research and innovation aimed at clean energy technologies, which will advance our energy sector and meet world-class environmental standards.

Alberta has enormous potential to supply clean energy to world markets yet our resources are challenging to extract. Alberta’s conventional oil and gas supplies are declining, and relying solely on current methods of production isn’t an option. We also want to do more to protect the environment, by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and preserving our valued water resources.

Alberta Innovates provides various funding programs in the areas of Post-Secondary Investments and Entrepreneurial Investments across all the province’s main industry sectors and emerging platform technologies.
