Who we are
The Science Innovation Union is a graduate and post-graduate led not-for-profit organisation with a primary focus in translational science, and assisting in bridging the gap between academia and industry. Our translational science scaffold is supported by four arms: Events & Networking, Consulting, Education, and Editorials; an all-inclusive set of training and educational activities engaging scientists and expanding the mind-set to the interface of business, science and entrepreneurship. In combination, these serve to inspire and support translation in science to industry and introduce a new trend to counter the classic academic culture.
Our mission is to provide a communication and training platform for academia, industry and government to bridge the knowledge-translation gap in life and health sciences. By forging communication channels and collaborations between the previously isolated fields of academia, industry and government, Science Innovation Union (SIU) exists to introduce a new methodology facilitating collaboration and allowing diffusion of knowledge between previously disparate professions leading to more translation of science and driving the field of life and health sciences forward.
