Science and Innovation Advisory Committee (SIAC)

The Science and Innovation Advisory Committee (SIAC) assists, educates, advises, and counsels Bioenterprise management, board and clients on trends in global research within the agri-technology sectors. The SIAC members make recommendations regarding the viability, uniqueness, defensibility and commercial potential of various technologies, products and services that are proposed to Bioenterprise as compelling innovations.

The SIAC networks with organizations or individuals including research institutes, government bodies and private sector companies of potential value to Bioenterprise's commercialization mandate. This committee participates in science, technology or commercialization think-tanks and strategy sessions, and attends seminars, summits, and trade-shows on behalf of Bioenterprise.
