Building Bio Facilities and Bio Ecosystems: Federal, State and Private Resources

10:15 AM - 11:15 AM (PDT), Thursday, June 16, 2022

New federal funding tools to support translational research and bio tech hubs are being developed by Congress and the White House, such as ARPA-H (Health) and EDA's $1 Billion Regional Tech Cluster competition. States are enacting their own policy and funding tools to support the bio industry and spur construction to reduce the national wet lab space shortage. The private sector is looking at ways to redevelop existing facilities into labs and create public-private partnerships with industry, academia, and government. 

 AURP is the leading global nonprofit representing bio health research parks and regional clusters across 42 states in the U.S. and 12 countries.  Hear from AURP practitioners how institutions and regions are responding to new bio science applied funding opportunities and incorporating governance, sustainability, community engagement and other factors to build communities of bio science innovation.
