CBI responds to Government's life science strategy
The CBI responded to the publication by the Government of a life sciences strategy.
Tim Bradshaw, CBI Head of Enterprise & Innovation policy, said:
“It’s welcome news that the Government has set out a life sciences strategy demonstrating its commitment to work with businesses to develop this important part of our economy.
“The UK is a world leader in the life sciences industry and this new strategy will help us maintain our competitive advantage as the industry evolves and new models and ways of working emerge.
“The £180 million catalyst fund will help businesses accelerate the development of new treatments and technologies, turning our excellent research into commercial success.
“Increasing access to data will lead to greater innovation, help to improve outcomes for patients, and support growth. The challenge now is for the NHS and the industry to work together to make this plan a reality.”
