Ambitious plans but no cash for UK biotechnology

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

No new funds will be made available to fund the UK government's cross-departmental "Biotechnology Crusade". The President of the Board of Trade, Ian Lang, launched the crusade, a cross-departmental drive to boost Britain's biotech industry, at the Institute of Directors, in London, last week. He said priorities include intellectual property protection and a competitive regulatory climate. The Ministers of Health, Food, Science and Technology, Agriculture, Forestry and Environment, the Scottish Office and Small Businesses all attended the launch but none had new money to support their plans.
