This specialty forum highlights biotech initiatives in global markets, looking at both emerging economies, and other global initiatives and trends (trade agreements, IP trends) that affect the industry’s landscape. The Forum will provide an overview of developments in key markets, as well as cross-cutting policy trends. It will also examine unique collaborations and cross-border initiatives to further innovation.
In this multidisciplinary, flattened world, the fields of tech and biotech are coming together like never before. What can they teach each other? And what are the challenges and opportunities conferred by their growing alliances? The 2017 Scientific American Worldview Super Session explored these ideas along with the larger themes of the 2016 edition of Worldview with industry experts, policymakers and preeminent scientists. Co-hosted by Scientific American and moderated by Marketplace Morning Report anchor David Brancaccio, this Super Session, now in its 8th year, examined global life science innovation in unique and dynamic new ways.
