Our bio focus

Bio at Alberta Innovates

Our bio sector is working to develop new sustainability practices, new natural products for world markets, and new economic opportunities and investment in Alberta.

We are embracing and supporting emerging technologies and the creation of new ideas for the growing global bioeconomy. We’re also delivering on the potential of agriculture and forestry in areas such as: value-chain sustainability, advancing the biorefinery, quality food for health, industry challenges, emerging opportunities, and prion and prion-like protein misfolding diseases.
