About the Science to Business Network (S2BN)
Mission: Foster a culture of innovation within and around the research and health care communities and optimize the Canadian environment for commercialization of science and innovation.
The S2BN believes that improving academia’s contribution to innovation in Canada depends on enhancing infrastructure in and around the research community to encourage innovative thinking and entrepreneurism, on improving linkages between academic researchers and industry, and on enhancing professional skills training for young scientists as well as other graduate-level trainees.
Innovation needs to be embedded as a complementary component of Canada’s research culture and training environment.
BioAlberta is a member-driven association that represents and promotes the province's vibrant and diverse life sciences industry. Through our many partnerships and collaborations, we are dedicated to promoting Alberta's life science sectors, locally, nationally and internationally.
Government support is critical to encourage much needed investments in the sector. Industry and government need to work collaboratively to create the policy framework that will support an innovative life sciences industry (PWC life sciences industry forecast 2013).
Our Vision: A thriving and competitive life sciences industry that fuels key sectors of Alberta's economy.
Our Mission: To be the central voice and organizing hub for the life sciences industry in Alberta. We promote, advocate and proactively facilitate the growth of Alberta's life sciences industry.
