An important component of AI Bio's operations is funding support for research projects that support the growth and diversification of Alberta's agriculture, forest and life sciences sectors.
In 2011, AI Bio's portfolio of 107 active investments totalled more than $56 million over the term of the projects across a wide array of research areas. The research projects spanned boreal reclamation in northwestern Alberta to nanocrystalline cellulose and livestock genomics in north central Alberta to prion and dietary fibre from peas, beans or lentils in southern Alberta.
