Biotechnology Development 2016
Brexit can be an excellent opportunity for Britain to realize its potential for science, in particular biotechnology. This is largely hindered by European Union-wide restrictions, but EU withdrawal will give the United Kingdom new opportunities, writes Bloomberg♪ Now, Britain can equally name the super-Power in both science and finance.
But the commercialization of scientific research is still at a fairly low level, notes a member of the British Parliament, George Freeman.
During a speech at the Conservative Party ' s Congress in Birmingham on 3 October, Friman called for the " national mission " from science to refer to President John Kennedy ' s statement on the Apollo Space Programme. " For us to leave the European legal field, the possibility of freeing ourselves from certain meaningless restrictions. In Europe, the achievements of modern biology and medicine are negative, and this is scary. That attitude is keeping science and us. The world is on the verge of a new era of biotechnology, and Europe itself builds a wall between itself and the future.” Freeman said. However, no concrete policy measures have yet been provided by the politician to undertake this by the end of 2016.
The Chancellor of the British Treasury, Philip Hammond, also made his commitment to science.
He promised to invest in genetic engineering for pharmaceuticals, agriculture and the chemical industry £100 million and £120 million in cooperation between British universities and biotechnology companies.
“I want to see what will be invented, developed and sold here in Britain. "I want this money to help my country create new places, get income, collect more taxes." "I want Hammond to say.
It is Freeman who is one of the sponsors of the new British industry strategy, which will be used in devising the conditions for withdrawal from the European Union. The Minister for Business and Energy, Greg Clark, in his statement, joined the party ' s colleagues and added that British specialists had long been applying the " gold standard " of work, and industrial development in the country was inextricably linked to environmental and clean energy.
