SOBIN IS ABOUT CONNECTIVITY

SOBIN is all about connectivity, supporting collaborative activities to accelerate innovation and commercialization. SOBIN was formed through the collaborative efforts of Acrolab, University of Windsor, St. Clair College, Ridgetown College, University of Guelph, Lambton College, Economic Development units of Sarnia-Lambton, Municipality of Chatham-Kent, and Windsor- Essex with the support of the Ontario Ministry of Research and Innovation. As we move forward, other important collaborations will include:

  • Working with the Ontario Chemistry Value Chain Initiative to help make Ontario a global leader in innovative, environmentally sustainable, chemical products, technologies and processes.
  • Working with educational and industrial partners to promote the inclusion of biofibre and biochemicals as replacements for petroleum based feedstock in automotive manufacturing.
  • Working with other Regional Innovation Networks focused on bioproducts, such as the Eastern Lake Ontario Regional Innovation Network (ELORIN) to develop the emerging Ontario biofibres industry.
