Alberta launches $100M program it says will transform research funding across Canada
In a new, highly targetted $100-million program, Alberta's provincial research-funding arm, Alberta Ingenuity, says it is setting out on a path that will significantly change the entire funding landscape across Canada.
This highly targeted funding program is a considerable change to how the organization has provided research funding in the past, and is expected to make a major impact on the province's future prosperity. The new program will be rolled out in phases and each Accelerator will support and align with provincial priorities and economic diversification goals. The first Accelerator will be awarded in the area of nanotechnology.
