NEW CIRIEC Working Paper by Massimo Florio
Massimo Florio has recently edited a CIRIEC Working Paper reflecting how the COVID-pandemic could be an opportunity for Europe to rethink the present public health funding strategy, roles and goals of all players involved.
The working paper, titled Biomed Europa: after the coronavirus, a public infrastructure to overcome the pharmaceutical oligopoly, is available online.
It proposes a structural intervention to create an international, interconnected, transparent, science-informed, and publicly-funded research infrastructure for pharmaceutical and biomedical research – BIOMED EUROPA.
The publications draw from an intervention (in Italian) at the streamed event “Inequality in times of crisis. A year in our lives that has been more useful than ever before: our 15 proposals” (25th March 2020) Inequality and Diversity Forum, and at the Webinar by Società Italiana degli Economisti, June 4, 2020.
