Sustainable Biotech SMEs – Drivers for European Innovation

16.09.2011

For the EU to achieve its goal of becoming the foremost knowledge-based economy in the world and a true ‘Innovation Union’, biotech Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) are vital. Some of the most valuable innovation happens in SMEs which then go on to form relationships with larger companies, paving the way for improved health, cleaner energy, products and processes and sustainable farming for Europe’s citizens.

However, to make sure Europe’s biotech SMEs thrive, there needs to be an appropriate regulatory and policy framework within which these companies can operate. EuropaBio’s SME Platform aims to create just that.
