Alberta Nanotechnology Strategy, Unleashing Alberta’s Potential

2007 - 2020


Alberta will be a leading contributor in placing Canada amongst the top five nations in the world by helping it produce 10 per cent of the world’s nanotechnology based economic activity.


By 2020, Alberta will achieve a two per cent share of the global nanotechnology market – generating an estimated $20 billion of new economic activity – by developing nano enabled products and applications specific to industries in the energy and environment, health and medical technologies, and agriculture and forestry sectors.
