Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Alberta researchers, companies, and industry groups to create new and improved bioindustrial products and technologies and to add value to biomass in agriculture and forestry. Applicants are required to submit a letter of intent prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended to advance the bioindustrial sector in the province.

The Alberta Bio Future program has been designed to encourage and support collaborations and partnerships between industry, academia, research organizations and government, which focus on new and improved bioindustrial products and bioindustrial technologies.

In line with Government of Alberta and Alberta Innovates priorities, Alberta Bio Future and its sub-programs aim to increase the value derived from Alberta’s abundant, renewable biomass resource, and to expand a competitive, sustainable and profitable bioindustrial sector (materials, chemicals and energy) through an integrated program with a strong industry focus. In addition to supporting the forest and agriculture sectors, the program represents a potentially significant opportunity to diversify the provincial economy.

Projects must:
- Have the project work carried out primarily in Alberta.
- Have a direct application to the bioindustrial sector.
- Develop bioindustrial products and bioindustrial technologies that use renewable, sustainable biomass, with a focus on agriculture and forestry biomass, produced or available in Alberta.
- Focus on developments leading to a competitive advantage for Alberta companies or other direct benefit to Alberta.
- Engage a project team with demonstrated competence, experience and the organizational capacity to successfully complete the project.
