ABOUT US

We started AIB Innovations because we identified a gap between academic research and industrial needs. We recognized that there was a lot of cross disciplinary research and expertise available that was relevant to industrial problems. However,it was either not properly communicated or going unrecognized by industry. We realized that our experience in Academic and Industrial research along with backgrounds in the Environmental, Forestry and Agricultural sectors allowed us to efficiently bridge the gap between Academia and Industry. 

We have ongoing technology development occurring in the Forestry, Agriculture and Environmental sectors and are excited by their future prospects. However we are always looking for individuals or industries with challenging problems that our expertise, connections to academia, and experience with various funding sources can be used to identify a solution, carry out the required research and incorporate it into your companies standard operating procedures. This will provide your business with a competitive edge!
