History

Developing Colorado’s Bioscience Cluster

In 2002 the Governor’s Office of Innovation and Technology partnered with a management team that included industry, university and government representatives – along with the Battelle Memorial Institute’s Technology Partnership Practice – to assess the status of the Colorado bioscience sector and develop a plan outlining the action agenda needed to make the biosciences a key driver of Colorado’s economy. That report, "Colorado’s Place in the Sun: A Bioscience Future, An Action Plan to Grow Colorado’s Bioscience Cluster," published In March 2003 kicked off the state’s focus on developing Colorado as the next bioscience business cluster.

Growth and development of a successful Colorado bioscience cluster depends on cultivating a business climate conducive to bioscience companies; nurturing an entrepreneurial culture for bioscience that turns research discoveries into new products, services and companies; and continued expansion of the state’s research base to build research excellence.
