OBIO/OBEST Five Year Strategic Review: January 2015

Since its founding, the Ontario Bioscience Innovation Organization (OBIO®) has been engaged in creating the future of Ontario’s biomedical sector through industry-led strategy, policy development, advocacy and high impact programming. OBIO pursues innovative thought leadership within a culture of trust, reaching out to ever growing circles of thinkers and stakeholders. The collective mission is to further innovation, development and commercialization of human health technologies and contribute a sustainable, growing bioscience industry to Ontario’s knowledge economy.

OBIO® led the Ontario Bioscience Economic Strategy Team (OBEST®), in developing a province-wide strategic vision to support the growth and viability of Ontario’s bioscience industry. 

OBEST identified 9 strategic initiatives and launched implementation teams in 2012. The efforts of these teams of dedicated volunteers has been captured under three strategic objectives: build companies, build the industry and build an environment in Ontario where a health science industry can thrive.
