The Manchester Manifesto

(MMS Bulletin 117, September 2010) "Science is a rapidly growing industry. Beyond basic research, the commercialisation of technologies and development of new products from bench top to marketplace is a complex process. In asking “Who Owns Science?” the Manchester Manifesto is concerned with all aspects of this process: scientific discovery, development, application and distribution; and the interactions between each aspect. The MMS Bulletin publishes parts of the Manifesto, which was launched in late November 2010."
