New knowledge and technology development within the Health & Life Sciences is moving extremely fast. And it is accelerating. This is a field which offers new technological solutions to all the significant challenges of mankind: Food, health, environment, climate, energy, materials and much more. The potential for value creation in the emerging bio-economy is vast, both for people and society and for business and industry.
To succeed in harvesting Bulgaria's full value creation potential in the life sciences, we need to mobilize all the involved players – public and private. We need to join forces behind a shared vision for the future and pull together to make it happen. We need to work systematically to enhance the factors that will enable sustainable growth. We need to bring people together across organizations, sectors and disciplines so that we can discover and develop the best new ideas.
