For those who missed the live presentation, here is the discussion of the 2014 Scientific American Worldview scorecard, featuring myself, Mike May (Worldview Editorial Director), David Brancaccio ( public radio’s Marketplace), and Caroline Rugierri (Access Life Sciences).
Some of the themes we discussed were:
- Innovation’s true “value proposition” and the ways in which investing in science has multilayered societal returns
- The biggest issues in biotech that continue to “flatten” the world and create common missions among countries
- The ever-changing landscape of international innovation and the ways government and industry can best support life science development
I hope you enjoy the preview. You can see past issues of Worldview at www.saworldview.com, and the 2014 issue will be launched at the BIO 2014 convention in San Diego.
