This conference is for researchers and innovators working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) through new products and technologies. It will also include a focus on advancing Alberta's bioindustrial sector.

The conference will take place November 6-8, 2017, at Edmonton’s Shaw Conference Centre. Topics include opportunities for researchers and innovators, financing and growing a clean tech business.

“We need to bring the right people together to spark innovation and deliver new technologies to reduce GHG emissions in Alberta,” says ERA CEO Steve MacDonald. “Through SPARK 2017, ERA and Alberta Innovates are connecting innovators and researchers to people who can help them succeed.”
