This article was originally published in Clinica
The UK government is unveiling tomorrow the "blueprint" for the recently-announced Office for Life Sciences (OLS). Lord Darzi and Lord Drayson, ministers for health and for science and innovation respectively, are expected to highlight access to finance and investment, and successful international marketing, to attract both business and investment, as keystones of the OLS. Such measures will "improve the operating environment" for the medical devices and diagnostics sectors, among others, and are being adopted in a spirit of "new industrial activism", says the government.
