The Innovation Family

Bio Solutions supports research and innovation growing prosperity in Alberta's agriculture, food and forestry sectors.

Health Solutions supports research efforts to further our understanding of health and disease, and to produce results that will make a difference to the health, economy and societal wellbeing of Albertans and people around the world.

Energy and Environment Solutions supports energy and environmental research and innovation in Alberta and is working to develop solutions for the biggest challenges facing these sectors.

Alberta Innovates-Technology Futures supports research and innovation activities directed at the growth and development of technology-based sectors, the commercialization of technology, the provision of business and technical services, and initiatives that encourage a strong science, technology and entrepreneurial culture in Alberta.

Alberta Innovates–Technology Futures was created on January 1, 2010, it was built on the successes of the former Alberta Ingenuity, former Alberta Research Council, former iCORE, and nanoAlberta.With roots stretching back almost 90 years, these organizations were well-known in the research and innovation community, not only within Alberta, but internationally as well. By bringing the separate entities together, the intention is to harness the creativity, innovation and outstanding research being conducted by all, and translate that into a new and improved organization that can build on the foundation laid by each entity.AITF shares the vision of each former organization - to leverage technology in order to make Alberta a great place to be, now and for future generations.
