InnovationInnovation is a social and economic process involving the introduction, development and adaptation of new ideas and marketable products and services. In this section we explore these activities, detailing the resources, policies, regulations and institutions that fuel and support these efforts in our communities.

An inventor may develop an idea, but it is the innovator who takes action, finds a unique application and incorporates it into a larger system of existing knowledge. This section focuses on the implementation of the creative spirit to encourage economic growth and social development that is applicable to every sector of Alberta's economy.

Throughout this section, learn how creative ideas and Alberta inventions travel off of the inventor's drawing board and into the lives of Albertans and Canadians.
