About the debate
Everyone talks about innovation – but innovation has to be more than a buzzword. It is the lifeblood of science and technology.
In a tough economic climate, innovation cannot be sacrificed. Nor, in these environmentally aware times, should it come at the expense of sustainability. There is an urgent need to focus on how best to promote and nurture innovation – today and in the future.
Bringing together influential and respected people from the worlds of science, technology, medicine, engineering education, government, industry and media, The Astellas Innovation Debate engages with the theme of scientific innovation in Britain and the world today.
