What is Alberta Innovates?
Alberta Innovates funds and supports health research and innovation activities in Alberta. They provide leadership for Alberta’s health research and innovation enterprise by directing, coordinating, reviewing, funding and supporting research and innovation.
Working with many partners in the health system, they ensure that research achieves innovation in care, policy and practice and that the needs of patients and clinicians influence research. Their mandate is to improve the health and wellbeing of Albertans and create, through innovation, health-related social and economic benefits for Albertans.
HYRS is just one of the many programs and initiatives they support. Please see the Alberta Innovates website for more details.
