As a follow up to the Outlook on Industrial Biotechnology Workshop organised in January 2010, a workshop entitled “Building an Efficient Bio-Based Economy through Industrial Biotechnology” was held in St Petersburg.
For many of today’s new biomedical innovations, the distinctions between different forms of medical products such as drugs, diagnostics and devices no longer apply. Biomedicine also tends to realize its potential today through process innovation, even more than product innovation.
This workshop, held in Paris, sought to develop a vision and medium-term strategy for work on green research, technology and innovation.
