UNIQUELY CANADIAN CONCEPT GOES GLOBAL
Canada was the first country to originate a national Biotech Week back in 2003. What began as a modest advocacy and awareness string of events experience where provincial partners gathered grew into a national success story which gained traction and snowballed to encouraging EuropaBio to establish their own annual week of events in 2013. Today whether in United States, Europe, Australia, Canada or elsewhere, biotech innovation is becoming increasingly central to the global competitiveness of the industries and sectors that form the economic foundation of economies.
The purpose of Global Biotech Week is to raise awareness of the industry and its global potential among policymakers, policy influencers and the general public more broadly. All countries are invited to join in on the celebration and use Global Biotech Week to showcase their country’s success and the industry’s global significance.
