Essay Plan: advantages outweigh disadvantages


  • People may question the objectivity and credibility of research funded and conducted by private corporations. Example: new drug developed by a pharmaceutical company => conflict of interest => bias / misleading results in favour of their drugs
  • Unethical studies such as uninformed human experiments or biological warfare agent tests might be carried out, posing severe threats to human safety


  • Corporate funding can facilitate existing research, drive innovation and boost economic growth. Private corporations may provide unlimited financial resources, and therefore research progress will not be affected by a shortage of money. Example: when a pandemic caused by an unknown virus such as the Covid-19 occurs, participation and investment of private companies in medical research might speed the process of discovering a viable vaccine.
  • Competition among businesses in the same industry might prevent or eliminate bias in scientific studies funded by a certain company or place the research results under close scrutiny.
