Date:6/6/2008

ations for academic researchers;

  • Build stronger linkages between firms to strengthen industry associations, identify challenges and pursue solutions;

  • Identify human resource requirements in specific disciplines and technical specialties and create and/or adapt training programs to meet the identified needs;

  • Stimulate the creation and expansion of academic and executive programs in entrepreneurial training specifically for the biotech sector;

  • Use public procurement mechanisms to support innovative startup firms.

    Next steps in the MRC program

    The MRC will continue to study health biotechnology companies in the developing world, and expand its focus to include Africa.

    The next phase of MRC's Emerging Economies Program will involve continued research into commercialization of innovative health biotechnology products and services and its application in emerging markets.

    Programme activities will follow two distinct tracks, each with its own research and commercialization phase:

    1. Accelerate development of health products and services for improved global health by identifying better, cheaper and faster ways to produce health products including vaccines, drugs and diagnostics to improve global health. The research focus will examine how the innovative and productive capacity of emerging economy firms can be harnessed to strengthen health biotechnology development. Commercialization will involve linking innovative firms in emerging economies with the global health community, including other firms in developed and developing countries, investors, donors and product development partnerships.

    2. Encouraging North-South entreprenurial collaboration in the health biotechnology sector to the benefit of all.
