Antony Evans - How do you see research and innovation making a difference for a better future?
It's not just science, you have to get products to market. And it's not just about doing basic science, you have to be out to take science out of the lab and to create products that actually mean something for end-users. You have to create value for the end-customer. And today, especially with genetics in the European Union you simply can't do that because of the incredible restrictions around genetically modified organisms in the UK and in Europe and that's why I, as a UK national, had to go to the United States to do our work because the US has much more liberal policies and understands the importance of being out to take these technologies out of the lab and into the market.
