Influencing and shaping our sector, BIA update: July – October 2017
Ongoing BioIndustry Association (BIA) engagement enables our members’ voices to be heard at the highest levels. This quarterly update gives an overview of key policy developments and the BIA’s continued engagement with policymakers, regulatory authorities and wider stakeholders on behalf of the UK life sciences industry, from July to October 2017.
Brexit, the government’s Industrial Strategy and a potential sector deal have been keeping all of us at the BIA very busy this quarter. August saw the publication of Professor Sir John Bell’s long-awaited Life Sciences Industrial Strategy while, more recently, we’ve been making the case for UK bioscience in our submission to the Treasury’s Patient Capital Review and through our engagement with politicians at this year’s party conferences. This quarter we also launched our new website and re-branded some of our key communication materials, including our weekly member newsletter, Newscast – make sure you have a look and do let us know what you think!
