Summary report

Innovation Symposium

The Biomanufacturing and Life Sciences Innovation Symposium was organized by Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada (ISED), in collaboration with Health Canada, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, the National Research Council of Canada (NRC), and other partners in Canada's Biomanufacturing and Life Sciences Strategy. The Symposium brought together stakeholders from the life sciences ecosystem to showcase innovation and capacity-building activities across the country.

Since the onset of the pandemic, the Canadian life sciences industry has begun a dramatic transformation, fueled in part by significant investments from the Government of Canada, including in connection with Canada's Biomanufacturing and Life Sciences Strategy. Canadian researchers, public institutions, private sector industry, and beyond are establishing capabilities and leading on the development of new technologies at the forefront of life sciences innovation. With over 400 attendees, the Innovation Symposium offered an opportunity for industry leaders to share details on the transformative work that they are undertaking in Canada.
