UK offers deal to drugmakers to boost productivity

The U.K. government wants to strike a deal to boost the productivity of the life science sector. Officials have called on business and academia to team up and pitch proposals for how the increasingly interventionist government can fix the problems they face. Sir John Bell, chair of the Office for Strategic Coordination of Health Research, is heading up a team working on a deal for the life science sector. The government said the goal is to come up with “a new strategy to make the U.K. the best place in the world to invest in life sciences.” Source: FierceBiotech 24/1/2017
