Alberta Innovates

Alberta has a new way to drive research and accelerate great ideas into innovations to improve our lives and economy. The Government of Alberta is consolidating existing agencies (Bio Solutions, Energy and Environment Solutions, Health Solutions and Technology Futures) into one corporation called Alberta Innovates that will fund and drive innovations.

As of November 1, 2016, Alberta Innovates – Health Solutions (AIHS) will be one part of Alberta Innovates (AI).  All references to Alberta Innovates – Health Solutions should be changed to Alberta Innovates.

Clinical Trials – External View of Studies in IRISS

To assist researchers whose studies also require approvals from Alberta Health Services (AHS) or Covenant Health for the use of their resources for research purposes (e.g., facilities, equipment, staff, patients or their records and systems), the Health Research Ethics Board of Alberta (HREBA) at Alberta Innovates (AI) is allowing AHS and Covenant Health access to the IRISS system. Access is being granted in order to facilitate applicable organizational approvals. This new agreement will streamline processes and eliminate duplication, resulting in greater efficiency. Please note this does not apply to purchasing AHS lab services for study purposes, as there are separate service provider agreements that are to be completed.  More information is available here.
