On 7 July, the Societat Econòmica Barcelonesa d'Amics del País (SEBAP) will hold a debate on how to maintain the efficacy of the Catalan research system. Participants will include executives from three benchmark organizations in this field in Catalonia: managing director of the Bellvitge Biomedical Research Institute (IDIBELL), Emilià Pola; director-general of the Barcelona Graduate School of Economics (Barcelona GSE), Eduard Vallory; and CEO of Biocat, Montserrat Vendrell. The event will be moderated by Joan Guinovart, chairman of the SEBAP Research Committee.

Of the 554 million euros the Catalan Administration invested in R&D in 2008, as shown in the Biocat Report 2009, nearly 30% went directly to biotech research. To see the most representative numbers of the BioRegion of Catalonia regarding research in Catalonia, click here.
