Overview

Alberta Innovates - Technology Futures supports a number of strategic partnerships, including:




AACI

The ongoing AACI Research Program is an in situ heavy oil research and development consortium that partners industry with government to advance field focused technologies. Work within this program involves identifying and evaluating improvements in operating practices and developing new exploitation strategies. 
 

Aboriginal Environmental Services Network

Alberta Innovates-Technology Futures is establishing an Aboriginal Environmental Services Network (AESN). The network will help fulfill an industry, government and community need for skilled people, available locally, to conduct environmental monitoring, data collection, water and soil sampling, vegetation management, reclamation, forest regeneration, wildlife monitoring and management, assessment and reporting. 
     

Alberta Manufacturing and Fabrication Innovation (AMFI) Program

The Alberta Manufacturing and Fabrication Innovation (AMFI) Program supports Alberta in the adoption of new technologies, techniques, and processes in their quest to be recognized as global leaders in manufacturing.  AMFI provides Alberta manufacturers with the necessary resources to effectively evaluate solutions against their specific needs and efficiently integrate the solution into their operations.
 

Canadian Pipeline Technology Collaborative

Supported by AITF, the Canadian Pipeline Technology Collaborative (CPTC) is a new initiative to develop and deploy technologies improving the safety and reliability of Canadian pipeline operations. The CPTC is built on an innovation model uniting Canada's pipeline operators, researchers and technology providers with the pipeline supply chain of manufacturers and equipment suppliers, to address industry-wide priorities. 
     


Materials and Reliability in Oil Sands (MARIOS)

The goal of MARIOS is to develop knowledge and validate technologies to significantly reduce downtime, and improve operational reliability and productivity in the oil sands industry. The consortium links oil sands producers, materials and equipment suppliers, fabricators, and technology providers to collaboratively solve industry-wide problems.
  Pipeline Integrity Corrosion Management (PICoM)

PICoM is an industry-led working group which facilitates collaborative R&D projects to improve detection, measurement and mitigation methods for corrosion in pipeline systems. This is accomplished by a suite of unique testing capabilities offered by Alberta Innovates-Technology Futures (AITF), and through focused workshops which allow for sharing of industry experiences and best practices. The intent is to create a unique consortium linking pipeline operators with suppliers to solve problems collaboratively.
