Highlights Sheet

Released in August 2010, Alberta’s Health Research and Innovation Strategy provides a high-level framework to guide health research and innovation investments and decision-making in the province to improve the health of Albertans and people around the world.

It will directly shape the business planning processes of key health research organizations in Alberta’s health research and innovation system including Alberta Innovates, Alberta Health Services and health research programs at post-secondary institutions. As implementation occurs over the next 10 years, the strategy will help to build the health research system needed to support our goal of having Canada’s best-performing, publicly-funded health system.

Co-developed over the last year by Economic Development and Trade and Alberta Health, more than 150 stakeholders were consulted for input through numerous workshops, one-on-one interviews and a forum held on April 8, 2009.
