For decades European countries have been among the most innovative on the planet when it comes to drug development. Scientists at stellar academic centers like the Karolinska Institute in Sweden and the Oxford/Cambridge university axis in the UK have produced some of the best thinking on new drugs the industry has seen.

Germany has seen a whole generation of biotech companies launched with public assistance from the BioRegions it began to establish more than a decade ago.
