Alberta Bio Future (ABF) and its sub-programs focus primarily on projects that add value to biomass in agriculture and forestry, and create new and improved bioindustrial products and bioindustrial technologies.
The ABF Biomaterials Pursuit sub-program was launched in November 2017, offering funding of up to $300,000. It is designed to expand on previous Alberta Innovates initiatives and funding in the bioeconomy.
Ten proposals were funded and projects are underway. This sub-program is now closed to new applications.
Who was eligible to apply?
- Researchers based in Alberta, and researchers elsewhere conducting bioindustrial projects with a benefit to Alberta.
- Operating companies or industry groups based in Alberta.
