Keystone Innovation Zone

Pennsylvania Biotechnology Center
Designated Bucks County Biotechnology Keystone Innovation Center
On September 7, 2006, Governor Edward Rendell launched the Pennsylvania Biotechnology Center as the designated Bucks County Biotechnology Keystone Innovation Zone (KIZ), the 19th such zone in the state, with an initial investment of $250,000 in operational funding.

The grant to support the Bucks County Biotechnology KIZ was approved by the Ben Franklin Technology Development Authority, whose partners include the Pennsylvania Biotechnology Center, Delaware Valley University, Hepatitis B Foundation and its research institute, the Baruch S. Blumberg Institute, and Ben Franklin Technology Partners of Southeast PA.

Capitalizing on the partners' experience in life sciences and information technology, the Bucks County Biotechnology KIZ will target the life sciences industry through information technology and advanced manufacturing.

Pennsylvania Keystone Innovations Zones have been established in communities that host academic institutions and are designed to foster innovation and create entrepreneurial opportunities. Since Governor Rendell created the KIZ program in 2004, more than $5.5 million has been provided to the 18 zones.
