UK Government issues Life Sciences report

The United Kingdom life sciences sector has called for (PDF) the government to make changes that help grow Big Biotechs and attract thousands of researchers. Specifically, Bell wants the government to help grow four companies with market caps north of £20 billion over the next decade. The report is better at identifying the problem than the fix, however. Ideas floated by Bell include “enabling or leveraging larger capital pools” and “other fiscal interventions ... including manufacturing support, local growth support and extension of R&D tax credits.” Source: Fierce Biotech 30/8/2017
