Celebrating its 20 anniversary in 2013, the Sanofi BioGENEius Challenge Canada (SBCC) is a national, biotechnology-focused science competition that exposes high school and CEGEP students to career possibilities and reveals the breadth of endeavour that makes up the bio-economy.
Breaking Ground, Growing Talent
The Sanofi BioGENEius Challenge Canada (SBCC) gives high school and CEGEP students from across Canada the chance to pour their creativity, curiosity and scientific skills into cutting-edge research projects that tackle some of the day’s toughest challenges—from cancer and Alzheimer’s disease to crops and the environment.
Welcome to the bio-economy
Students gain exposure to the exciting field of biotechnology—and the opportunities a career in the bio-economy might hold for them. The SBCC helps build Canada’s biotechnology capacity by offering the next generation of scientists the opportunity to gain hands-on experience of what it takes to succeed in the bio-economy.
Sanofi BioGENEius Challenge Canada celebrates 20 years of advancing science. 74% of SBCC participants pursued science careers thanks to national biotechnology research competition.
