In 2016, Alberta Innovates Technology Futures was restructured to become a wholly owned subsidiary of Alberta Innovates and rebranded as InnoTech Alberta. Alberta Innovates’ focus is now primarily on supporting the industry through funding programs. InnoTech Alberta offers a range of scientific, engineering, and technological capabilities for technology development and commercialization. InnoTech Alberta’s strategic purpose is to accelerate technology development, provide expert advice and technical information, as well as provide scientific infrastructure to the private and public sector in Alberta. Both Alberta Innovates and InnoTech Alberta build on the successes of the former organizations such as Alberta Ingenuity, Alberta Research Council, 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.
InnoTech Alberta 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.
