The Scotsman will be holding a conference entitled, 'Realising the Potential for Life Sciences in Scotland' on 25 February at the Scottish National Galleries, Edinburgh.
Life sciences is one of Scotland's key economic sectors, with 600-plus organisations employing 32,000 people and adding more than £3 billion in annual economic value.
Edinburgh and Dundee have developed clusters of expertise in the field, the Glasgow BioCorridor is putting the achievements of the west on the map and there is world-leading research work taking place across Scotland.
But are we making the most of our undoubted expertise? Is some of the excellent R&D work failing to translate as well as it might into significant domestic manufacturing capability? This conference will examine the state of Scotland's life sciences industry and how it can continue to move forward in a coherent and joined-up way to the benefit of all parties.
