Dr. Barbara Freischem serves as Executive Director of the European Biopharmaceutical Enterprises (EBE). EBE was founded in 2000 as the voice of biopharma and emerging science in Europe, within the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (EFPIA). During DIA’s first DIA BioVenture Day, Dr. Freischem delivered a presentation titled Europe’s Flawed and Underfunded Biotech System, which she explores in this exclusive Global Forum podcast. “Europe’s issue is its translation capability of basic science into commercial research,” she explains. “In Europe, there is fantastic funding available for research, but when we try to translate the outcome of that research into successful businesses, we seem to fail.” Learn more about these topics at our Value & Regulatory Strategy Workshop in Europe.
