SSTI encourages OSTP to support bioeconomy through commercialization, apprenticeship assistance

October 31, 2019

The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) is exploring a national strategy to promote the U.S. bioeconomy. In response to a request for information, SSTI submitted a letter encouraging OSTP to leverage existing regional assets as part of its approach. To see more innovations converted into new products, services and businesses, the letter encourages a new program to fund commercialization assistance and to strengthen SBIR. To see more workers benefit from the bioeconomy sector, and to see companies in the industry become more efficient, the letter highlights the potential value of high-skill apprenticeship models.
