CK Director on Biocity Bootcamp Panel of Experts

Liam O’Connell, Director at CK Science will be appearing on the expert panel at Biocity and the Healthcare & Bioscience iNet evening seminar, “Entrepreneurs, Universities and the Economy”.

The seminar  follows a pro-enterpise speech at the end of 2010, during which Prime Minister David Cameron outlined his vision for turning the years ahead into the most entrepreneurial and dynamic in the history of the UK. He outlined his plan to build a new economic dynamism relying heavily on innovation and start-ups alongside collaboration between universities and businesses.

During the seminar, the BBC’s Working Lunch presenter Rob Pittam will ask the panel of experts:
1. What impact will the 23 March budget have on the life science industry and governments stated aim of boosting enterprise?
2. In particular how will this affect your business [i.e. the panel member’s] and what significant effects has government had on your business in the past- if any?
