The ministry and the pharmaceutical firm will work together over the next five years to enhance the biotechnology business ecosystem, advance clinical trials, and enable research and innovation characterized by strong IP legislation, etc.
The MoU includes the launch of an “Innovation Incentive Scheme.”
Saudi Investment Minister Khalid Al-Falih said: “The case for investing in life sciences and healthcare has never been clearer, as we continue to fight the pandemic.
The sector has shown remarkable innovation and agility to deliver the COVID-19 vaccine, an achievement that would not have been possible without significant investment.”
