Alberta Innovates officially launched on Nov. 1, 2016.

In March 2016, the Government of Alberta announced the consolidation of four Alberta Innovates Corporations — Bio Solutions, Energy and Environment Solutions, Health Solutions and Technology Futures – into one innovation powerhouse.

Our transition to a single organization will continue over the coming months. Until a refreshed Alberta Innovates site can be built, information about our programs in the bio sector is available on this website (formerly Alberta Innovates Bio Solutions).

It means taking risks, using a broad array of supports, and investing the time and input of many people working together, across disciplines, sectors and areas of expertise.
