MassBio and partner organizations began the BioReady® Communities Campaign in early 2008 to help enable Massachusetts to maintain its global leadership in biotechnology by increasing the inventory of real and potential biotechnology facility sites in the state.
As part of the BioReady® Campaign, MassBio has developed ratings for municipalities who fill out an application with information on their zoning practices and infrastructure capacity. Our focus with these ratings is to help biotechnology companies find the most favorable destinations in the Commonwealth and to enable the state and its cities and towns to effectively tell their story to the biotechnology industry. BioReady®-rated cities and towns have made a commitment to biotechnology.
Want to help your community become BioReady? Read our full municipal guide covering life sciences basics, including regulatory frameworks, safety considerations, and facility requirements.
If you are interested in receiving a MassBio BioReady® Community designation for your municipality, please fill in this brief application below to tell us more. Before the BioReady® Ratings are publicized by MassBio, you will receive confirmation of your community’s rating from MassBio. We re-rate BioReady® communities on a rolling basis.
