The Life Sciences and Healthcare landscape is transforming. Demographics, quality of life, environmental and economic shifts are all contributing. As the global population is growing and aging, new areas of medical need are emerging. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us all that the world needs to be better prepared to respond to global health emergencies, regardless of geography, or socio-economic position.
These changes mean significant challenges for the Life Sciences and Health sectors, but they are also driving exceptional efforts for technological advances and global cooperation. NPL’s advanced measurement science infrastructure and capability will be essential to address these challenges and realise the opportunities they provide.
