About the position paper

Despite the wealth of research data published, too few Life Science-based innovations are presently developed. Investment into Life Science research has led to a fundamental increase in knowledge over the last decades. Almost a million newly published articles were added to the biomedical database Pubmed in 2012 alone. Yet, patients are still waiting for new cures, plastics and toxins are still accumulating in the environment, and bacteria develop multi-resistance against antibiotics.

In this position paper, obstacles are highlighted that constrict the transformation of Life Science knowledge into products and applications. We, the Young European Biotech Network (YEBN), propose solutions that could help to overcome these obstacles.
