During a visit to the French Ministry of Health, Emilie Sam explained to me the mechanisms for French investments in the innovation of new biomedical technologies.

“In 2016, 54.3% (~€65 million) of the Uncovered Innovative Procedures List allowance correspond to innovative genetic procedures which can be split into ~€36 million for oncogenetic procedures and ~€29 million for constitutional genetic procedures.”
