The award for "Mediscience commentator of the year" recognises the importance of clear and concise commentary on the sector. It could be awarded to an analyst, a journalist, a columnist, a research house, a specialist website or a team that is dedicated to providing sharp, perceptive and penetrating commentary about the sector. In-depth knowledge of the sector is a given; the Voting Panel look for excellence in the way that knowledge is communicated to the wider audience. Previous winners include the teams at BioCentury, EP Vantage and Andrew Clark from The Times.
Commenting on Instinctif Partner’s sponsorship of the Award and of the event for the 6th year, Sue Charles, Managing Partner, Life Sciences said:
"The listed company sector is very buoyant at the moment, driven by the surge in IPOs in the US and increasing positive sentiment in investors. The European Mediscience Awards provides a great platform to showcase the successes over here in Europe. The Awards not only celebrate the achievements of the year but they also raise the bar and aspirations for the rest of us working in the Mediscience sector. We are pleased to be a sponsor Commentator of the Year for the 6th year, and encourage the nomination of individuals or publications who have helped audiences understand the complexities of the sector but have also helped maintain and build interest in it.
