BioForward Wisconsin and BIOQuébec to Formalize International Cooperative Relationship

BioForward Wisconsin, the collective voice of Wisconsin's robust and comprehensive biohealth cluster, and BIOQuébec, Québec's largest network of biotechnologies and life sciences, will sign a memorandum of understanding to advance cooperative relationships and promote life sciences.

The signing will occur during a virtual public event titled, “Québec and Wisconsin: Two Thriving Life Science Ecosystems Sharing Strengths and Opportunities,” on March 25. It will be hosted by Martine Hébert, Quebec Government Delegate in the Midwest, whose office introduced the two organizations.

Presentations about the life science ecosystems of the two clusters will be followed by speakers from four accomplished life science businesses: Immune Biosolutions, Diex Recherche, Gilson and Covance by Labcorp. They will discuss the advantages of area business environments and the importance of building international alliances and partnerships to grow their enterprises.

"The priorities of both associations are aligned and there is a joint commitment to improving the quality of life of the population and to achieving the objectives of our mission, making this an ideal partnership," said BIOQuébec Executive Director Anie Perrault.

The memorandum will underscore the two organizations' shared efforts to advance cooperative relationships with research, development, and manufacturing, as well as encourage and promote the growth of the life sciences industry, leveraging each agency's comparative advantage to support high-quality and sustainable development. The reciprocal relationship outlined by the memorandum also will facilitate cross-border partnering and networking for association members.

"This step will take us both a long way in growing our dynamic and robust biohealth clusters and will have a crucial impact on the economic growth of both regions,” said BioForward CEO Lisa Johnson. “I am pleased that the Quebec Government Delegation Office in the Midwest made this introduction, resulting in today’s agreement that will benefit our respective regions and businesses."

Prior to signing the memorandum, Johnson and Perrault exchanged views on the impact of – and challenges facing – the biohealth community and shared short- and long-term development priorities for integrated health solutions.
