Money matters for life scientists – University of Reading

Release Date : 27 April 2004

The Thames Valley Life Sciences Network held its second network evening, "Money Matters for Life Scientists", in Reading on Thursday 22 April. Hosted by Boyes Turner, the meeting was well-attended by members drawn from the Life Sciences, academic and support service communities in the Thames Valley. Guests heard speakers from PriceWaterhouse Coopers discuss the R & D Tax Credits scheme, methods for protecting Royalty Stream Income and the Valuation of Intellectual Property. This event followed the highly successful launch of TVLSN in February 2004, since which the Network has continued to grow; attracting members from the biotech, pharmaceutical, food and agriculture industries, the universities of Reading, London, Oxford and Bath and support service professionals. TVLSN provides the thriving Life Sciences sector in the Thames Valley with a forum to meet regularly and discuss and exchange ideas. Members also benefit from exclusive e-networking opportunities via the on-line TVLSN membership database and free business mentoring. Mentoring sessions, held regularly throughout the year, give members a confidential 45-minute session with a panel of experts, comprising legal and accountancy professionals, business advisors and life scientists. The sessions are aimed at signposting the client towards a structured solution to their problem, however large or small. The next TVLSN event, "Current Developments in Life Sciences in the Thames Valley", will take place on Thursday 10 June 2004 in Reading. Speakers from Lonza Biologics, RSSL and the Head of the new School of Pharmacy at the University of Reading, will discuss recent innovations and developments, and share their experiences of working with partner organisations.
