CSBI and InnovATEBIO convened a national Summit in June 2023 at the National Academies of Sciences in Washington, D.C., tasked with developing workforce strategies designed to sustain U.S. leadership in life sciences innovation. Both national organizations and their multi-state members helped to comprise over 250 attendees for the National Science Foundation (NSF) supported Envisioning the Next Bioscience Workforce Summit, which brought together thought leaders from the public and private sectors.
