Alberta Innovates : Focusing interdisciplinary platform research within an Industry-Guided Research Institute by Prof Randy Goebel

Abstract
The public mandate for strategic research in Alberta focuses on the application areas of Health, Energy, Environment, and Bio-industries, based on the foundation platforms of nano science and technology (Nano), information and communications technology (ICT), and omics (genomics, metabolomics, metagenomics, etc.). We present a summary of the current system of research funding in these areas, and examples about how to identify industry driven "pull" to catalyze collaboration across the foundation platforms and applied research and development in priority application areas of health, environment, energy, and bioindustries.
