We'd move to Canada but it's too cold

GRDC Program Consultant Deirdre Davis says a recent Canadian Government-sponsored biotechnology seminar she attended sent the following "friendly, but challenging" advice to the Australian biotechnology industry:

  1. to researchers — commercialise your R&D in Canada, it's easier than in Australia;
  2. to companies — invest in Canada, it's simpler; and
  3. to government organisations — emulate Canada's successful biotech and infrastructure investments: it will help you better service Asian market demands.
