Bioscience industries continue to be a significant and dynamic part of the U.S. economy. State policymakers understand that significance and have employed a number of strategies to retain, grown and attract bioscience jobs in their respective states. BIO is therefore pleased to work with TEConomy Partners LLC to compile a report that sheds light on the status of the bioscience industry around the United States and where the bioscience jobs are across the country. This report delves into all aspects of the biosciences, from health care, agriculture, and industrial applications to biotechnology, as well as the many different types of jobs in the industry ranging from research to manufacturing and commercial to administrative jobs. This session will be an opportunity to learn more about the report. More importantly, prominent state policymakers will participate and explain the initiatives they have championed to retain, grown and attract bioscience jobs in their respective states.
