Mapping the Global Biopharma Value Chain (2015-2016)

This project under the sponsorship of the European Commission Institute for Prospective Technologies collects data on the operations of the global Biopharma Multinational firms and their subsidiaries. The database with the complete global population of firms looks at the relationships between European Headquarters, their subsidiaries around the world, and the operations of global subsidiaries in Europe. The cases of Bulgarian Biopharma and the Biomedical technology cluster in the Greater South East in the UK highlight the challenges to value chain integration and upgrade through services and investment.
