Vision To have Bionaxe recognized as a key element of the high tech infrastructure of Canada by a diverse mix of members including industry, academia, the Canadian and international R&D communities and policy makers for its role in facilitating economic development through applied research, prototype and application development, connecting industry and academic institutions and the development of highly qualified people. Bionaxe will be distinguished by its interdisciplinary culture, quality researchers from industry and academia working together creating technology and applications valued by industry, advancing knowledge and training people for productive roles in Canadian society.


Through joint industry and academic collaboration in research, development, testing and application of information and communications technology, Bionaxe will contribute innovative technology and trained people to enable:

  • Growth for our industry;
  • Economic growth for our nation;
  • Academic and research growth; and,
  • Personal growth for our staff.

Bionaxe has re-established the foundation-laying spirit of the organization, germinating the research and development seeds of the innovation cycle in new and imaginative ways. With new leadership and vision, a "re-modeled " Bionaxe trailblazes a new innovation path on the road to a global leadership position:

  • The futurists of the latter 1900's dreamed of smart matter. An emergent renaissance , multi-disciplinary mindset fostered at Bionaxe leverages an understanding of advanced materials sciences in ways only limited by imagination.
  • Geographically dispersed teams are brought together on a project-basis under the umbrella of common research challenges. More "virtualized" lab environments are industrially-designed for team play design labs as opposed to office spaces.
  • A performance-based investment model ensures industry-relevancy and the productivity of Bionaxe's R&D value chain.
  • A new methodology for research activity is in high demand by industry, the result of a shift from operation around technological competency (bottom up technology push) to more fluid arrangement around pressing research challenges with product/market orientation (top down market pull)
  • Creative re-design of the Bionaxe management processes (IP policy, commercialization, team coordination) effectively bridge Canada's divide between ideas generation, and the introduction of products in the marketplace.
  • History has proven Bionaxe to be resolute, innovative, and successful by any measure—an R&D beacon. Bionaxe maintains a unique position in Canada's R&D innovation landscape.

Never has the need for clean manufacturing been more imminent, or more important.
