ECIPE Seminar: Innovation Success – or Failure? Industrial Policy and the Biotech Sector

June 21 2016
Venue: ECIPE Office - Rue Belliard 4-6, 1040 Brussel
Speakers: Sir Geoffrey Owen, Michael Hopkins, Eliana Garcés Tolón, Björn Weigel
Time: 15:00

What policies are needed in order to foster breakthrough technologies out of which companies can create innovation successes?

In a fascinating new book – Science, the State and the City – Geoffrey Owen and Michael Hopkins take stock of the UK and European biotech sector and ask why it did not deliver on its promise. It covers a broad range of issues – the scientific development, industrial policy and the general financial conditions for innovation – and raises questions about the quality of innovation and entrepreneurship policy in Europe, especially in light of the climate for innovation in the United States. Why did Europe become a laggard in biotech – and what do the explanations behind it say about general innovation policy in Europe?
