As KansasBio evolves, one of its priorities is to provide relevant informational resources to the Kansas bioscience community.
Kansas Bioscience and Innovation Roadmap
To facilitate the process of understanding Kansas’ bioscience assets and opportunities, the Kansas Technology Enterprise Corporation (KTEC), a founding member of KansasBio, engaged New Economy Strategies (NES), a Washington based consultancy, to develop a comprehensive roadmap that will provide strategic guidance to the state’s bioscience initiative. More than 700 stakeholders across the state assisted in this research effort.
Kansas Bioscience Industry Database
KansasBio is currently developing a central database of Kansas industry resources. Data from more than 160 Kansas bioscience companies and institutions have been collected, providing the framework for our initial database. If your firm or organization is interested in being listed in our database, please contact KansasBio at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kansas Bioscience Authority
The Kansas Bioscience Authority was created in April 2004 when Governor Kathleen Sebelius signed into law the Kansas Economic Growth Act (KEGA). An independent entity of the state, it is governed by a Board of Directors composed of prominent local and national leaders in the areas of science, technology, and business. The Bioscience Authority will guide the state in the investment of over $580 million dollars generated through KEGA.
