Last month, the Maryland Workforce Corporation (MWC) proudly partnered with the Maryland Biotechnology Center (a division of the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development), the Maryland Chamber of Commerce, the Maryland Association of Community Colleges, and the University System of Maryland to form the Maryland Bioscience Initiative (MBI) Consortium. The Consortium applied for $5 million in grant funds from the U.S. Department of Labor's Employment and Training Administration to help Maryland-based bioscience employers to identify, hire, train, retain, and advance workers. The proposal had the support of 20+ bioscience employers.
