From our friends at looks as though Europe is tearing down another anti-capitalist wall: the one between academia and industry that slowed translation of biotechnology into products.  How?  By using the same approach that President Reagan took by expanding the Bayh-Dole through executive order with Federal Technology Transfer Act.  That put government agencies on notice to share all patentable technologies with the private sector to promote investment al presto. 

This will make the pharmaceutical purists and conflict of interest capos sick am I sure.  There is now nowhere in the world where their views have been turned into policy or law...except North Korea or Cuba.   Here's the post from Fastercures Smartbrief...

EC wants more research headed to product development
The European Commission is asking for more interaction between universities and pharmaceutical companies to ensure that research knowledge is more quickly translated into products and services. The EC adopted a recommendation on how member states can revise their policies to allow public research organizations to leverage intellectual property more effectively.

Center for Medicine in the Public Interest is a nonprofit, non-partisan organization promoting innovative solutions that advance medical progress, reduce health disparities, extend life and make health care more affordable, preventive and patient-centered. CMPI also provides the public, policymakers and the media a reliable source of independent scientific analysis on issues ranging from personalized medicine, food and drug safety, health care reform and comparative effectiveness.
