Skolkovo hosted the Nobel Vision Forum. Open Innovations 2.0. It discussed the impact of scientific discoveries and achievements on the creation of new markets and the formation of global trends.

The event hosted a session entitled “The day COVID-19 was stopped. Healthcare 2030 ”, where experts discussed how the pandemic affected and changed the healthcare system.

The forum was attended by Roger Kornberg, Nobel Prize Laureate in Chemistry, Co-Chairman of the Scientific Advisory Council of the Skolkovo Foundation.

He talked about what he thinks will accelerate the development of modern vaccines. Kornberg also believes that states should enter into international cooperation on this issue:

The COVID-19 virus will never go away completely. This means that states will continue to prioritize vaccine development and the number of development companies will continue to grow. Already, there are many promising ambitious players on the market, who offer not only different in composition, but also different in the method of administration of vaccines.

He added that the pandemic has triggered scientific progress, as well as charted the direction for the development of medicine.

Even greater success, according to Kornberg, will be achieved if the states jointly check and approve drugs and vaccines.
