Europe’s life sciences industry has a long and successful history of bringing cutting-edge therapies to the market. But the region risks falling behind the rest of the world without increased investment in innovation. Policymakers and industry leaders face some critical decisions as the European Commission debates the first major legislative overhaul of the industry in more than 20 years.

It was recorded during the Oliver Wyman Health and Life Sciences Innovation Forum.
