The public portion of the International Symposium Development of an R&D Cluster in Okinawa has been posted. The symposium brought experts from around the world, with a particular emphasis on regions such as San Diego, Singapore, and Israel. Complete coverage, including video links in English and Japanese are on the Okinawa Institute for Science and Technology website.

I will be writing up my comments in a future issue of the Journal of Commercial Biotechnology, and linking to them from this blog.

The panel on applying Design Thinking to biotechnology was well received, and I look forward to writing up my observations.

I’m now in Japan for a workshop on developing a biotechnology cluster. The U.S. biotechnology industry – the largest in the world – was basically developed with¬† strong¬† support from Japanese pharmaceutical and brewing companies. I look forward to developing new insights on what Japan can do to bolster its biotechnology industry.
