The European Institute, in cooperation with Amgen, will hold a special meeting of the Roundtable on Technology and Innovation, on the margins of the 2011 BIO International Convention to discuss sustaining biotech innovation. The meeting will address U.S. and EU approaches to spurring innovation in the biotechnology sector in a time of budgetary constraints and growing concerns over rising healthcare costs. With innovation the lynchpin for economic recovery on both sides of the Atlantic, we will examine what policies are necessary to attract and retain companies that innovate, as well as the prospects and challenges for furthering transatlantic cooperation on this shared priority.
The meeting will be held Wednesday, June 29 from 8:30 to 10:00 a.m. in the Wilson and Roosevelt Rooms of the Grand Hyatt, located at 1000 H Street, NW. Registrati
