‘From aspiration to implementation’

(CANADA)

There are major societal challenges to overcome today and a whole lot more on the horizon as populations increase and pressure is heaped on food systems.

So we asked some biotech leaders – and others from the wider economy – how innovation can provide the solutions.

Andrew Casey, President and CEO, BIOTECanada, said: By 2050, in a world with a population in excess of nine billion people – that’s going to create a lot of pressures on society, and our environment. It’s a social imperative that’s leading to a business opportunity. Canada’s leadership role in the development of key health, industrial, agricultural and environmental biotech innovations will have greatly improved the way we live, grow and manufacture. With great scientists, researchers and an impressive array of early stage biotech companies in all sectors, it will be incumbent for industry to lead the move from aspiration to implementation. If we get it right, a world under stress from population growth and environmental change awaits our solutions.”
