The Regional Innovation Network of Southern Alberta (RINSA) is a collaborative partnership between, Lethbridge College, Economic Development Lethbridge, and the University of Lethbridge, with support from Community Futures Lethbridge Region, SouthGrow Regional Initiative and NRC-IRAP. While the ‘region’ was to encompass an area from south of Calgary to the Canada/USA border, and from roughly the Town of Taber to the Alberta/BC border. RINSA’s effect is felt far beyond these informal borders.
RINSA helps Small & Medium sized Enterprises by collaborating to help businesses bring new products or processes to market. RINSA also networks with other innovation systems in Alberta to maximize efficiency and province-wide collaboration.
