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.
