(AOF) – Median Technologies announces today the launch of a capital increase for an indicative amount of approximately 10 million euros. The company, which provides software solutions and health imaging services, specifies that this operation will consist of a private placement for institutional investors and a public offering for retail investors via the PrimaryBid platform. In the event of excess demand from investors within the framework of the Private Placement, the Company reserves the right to increase the amount raised.

Loss of speed in European research
European research is losing ground to American and Chinese research. In twenty years, Europe’s share has fallen from 41% to 31% in global R&D. China’s share jumped from 1% to 8%. As for the United States, which supplanted Europe, in 2001 it devoted only 2 billion euros per year more than Europe to R&D, whereas now this gap has reached 25 billion! Some experts accuse the European authorities of not having deployed effective policies. The financing of pharmaceutical research should therefore have been better targeted via the “Horizon 2020” programme. France only comes in eighteenth position in European funding despite the quality of its research. Conversely, the United States concentrates funding on Boston and a few centers of excellence.
