Strategic Pillars

Commercialization of Innovative Bio-mass Research

CRIBE will support the commercialization of research and development findings and transfer these technologies to industries in Canada and worldwide.

Incorporate the Present Industry Base in the Future

CRIBE will develop the forest-based bio-economy in a way that respects, synergistically builds upon and transforms the existing forest economy.

Diversification of Biomass Uses

CRIBE supported initiatives will diversify and strengthen the economy of Northern Ontario by transforming the area's available forest fibre resource and human resource skills into innovative and higher value-added uses.

Nurture New Business

The true measure of CRIBE's success will be its ability to nurture and grow businesses supporting the northern bio-economy, and to attract new investment to Ontario in general and Northern Ontario in particular.
