Final Report - INDECS-H (Development capacity index for biotech companies)

Project ID: 37464
Funded under: FP6-LIFESCIHEALTH

Abstract

There is a lack of data on bioscience companies in Europe, some data gathering initiatives have focussed on more developed biotech sectors, with a low level of information on bioscience companies in the new Member States. Information on biotech sectors is generally developed along national or regional lines. The European dimension of putting together these data gives these countries a comparative benchmark to compare themselves with other typical biotech companies from other new Member States as well as EU regions. This project enables identification, tracking and measuring the capacity of the developing biotech sectors in countries where little data is available.

According to their final report, the validation, analysis and reporting on the data set collected using a single definition enabled an assessment of the development capacity of the healthcare bioscience sector in the new Member States and enable the data to be benchmarked against existing data trends to a certain extent, when definitions used are similar. The comparison helped draw conclusions on the healthcare biotech sector and recommendations for policy adaptation.
