NEW CIRIEC Working Paper by Massimo Florio

July 2020, 

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. 

An interview on the same topic (in Italian) is also available on
