GE and Alberta team up to develop technology

Abstract:
Also today, Alberta Ingenuity launched a $100-million, 10-year program to attract top researchers to the province to work on critical economic areas.

Horner said nanotechnology is the initial focus, but the program will also speed up the pace of discoveries in other major industries.

Albert Ingenuity president Peter Hackett said the vision is to create a system of "accelerators" in critical areas.

"The approach is simple - attract exceptional people, provide exceptional levels of support, allow those individuals to achieve exceptional results and create the exceptional economic and social benefits that will position Alberta as a global innovation icon."
