Quebec Mission to Biomarine2016

In October 2017, more than 20 nations, 300 business entrepreneurs, political leaders, and ocean ambassadors will gather in Rimouski, Quebec, for the 8th BioMarine International Business Convention—BioMarine Rimouski 2017.

In preparation for this event, Fisheries and Oceans Canada Science Partnership Fund provided $15,000 to support the Quebec mission to BioMarine Oslo 2016. The mission's goal was to facilitate networking and knowledge exchange between key organizations involved in marine biotechnology innovation and research, and to enable Quebec experts in this leading-edge sector to share best practices on an international scale. Other goals were to: stimulate joint projects and commercial initiatives that use Canadian research findings and adapt foreign technology research; promote Quebec and Canadian expertise at the convention; create strong ties with the BioMarine organization; and, work proactively toward BioMarine 2017, with a view to maximizing its economic benefits.

The Quebec mission to BioMarine Oslo 2016 provided an important opportunity to communicate federal research findings at an international level, participate in the development of the preliminary program for BioMarine 2017, and promote topics important to Canada, such as aquaculture. The mission also offered potential to develop new research and business partnerships and reinforce existing ones, develop new markets, seek new investments, promote new products, and prepare for BioMarine 2017.
