The UK BioIndustry Association, the BIA, is the trade association for innovative enterprises involved in UK bioscience. Members include start-up, emerging and more established bioscience companies; pharmaceutical companies; academic, research and philanthropic organisations; and service providers to the bioscience sector.

The BIA works to further the interests of members and the industry – nationally and internationally. Their heritage of innovation, enterprise and success dates back to their founding over 20 years ago.

Influencing Progress

Bioscience is a national priority for the UK. The BIA works to encourage and promote a financially sound and thriving bioscience sector within the UK economy.

Their goal is to secure the UK’s position as a global hub and as the best location for innovative research and commercialisation, to help enable the UK’s world-leading research base to deliver healthcare solutions that can truly make a difference to people’s lives.

Lobbying is a core BIA strength. They provide a strong, unified, relentless voice for bioscience to stakeholders — including government, politicians, the media and patient advocate groups — to address the critical issues their members face and to push for progress. They educate policy makers about the needs of their members and advocate for legislation and policies essential to their members growth and success.

Enabling Connections

Collaboration is key to moving bioscience forward. To support and enhance collaboration, the BIA brings together organisations from across the life sciences industry. This includes service providers, valued not only for the vital functions they serve in the sector, but also for their business acumen, expert guidance and industry connections.

The BIA hosts events throughout the year where members and others from the sector can learn, discuss, debate and network.

BIA Advisory Committee meetings connect peer groups to engage in debate and develop solutions to shared issues and challenges.

The BIA also keeps members connected and updated via regular communications. In addition, the BIA provides a host of other business development and business support services to enhance the value of membership. They facilitate introductions to other BIA members, provide meeting spaces at their central London office, offer member-only discounts to BIA and selected third-party events and also with suppliers.
