After months of preparation, the Scientific American worldVIEW project has launched.
I had the pleasure of serving as lead editorial consultant of this project, and my mission was to cut through the marketing messages and develop a coherent measure of biotechnology innovation on a country-by-country basis. You can hear me talk about the project and some of the findings here, and you visit the worldVIEW site here, and you can see the innovation scorecard here. My perspective on why, and how, biotechnology blossomed in the United States is here.
Update: You can see Jeremy Abbate, director of global media at Scientific American, and I discussing the project here.
