Six years ago I built a global biotechnology innovation index, and I have been using it since tracking global biotechnology innovation in Scientific American’s Worldview. It has been a very rewarding project, and I have enjoyed the opportunity to present my research data at international conferences, business schools, and even National Defense University.
Some of the issues I am focusing on this year are economic recovery, agricultural biotechnology, and global biotechnology workforce intensity and mobility.
I am always looking for feedback on the index and new data sets to help expand it. I invite you to visit the scorecard at http://www.saworldview.com/wv/scorecard/ and send me your suggestions and feedback.
