Has SFI expenditure been worthwhile?

IDA boss forecasts up to 10,000 new jobs next year | Breaking News - eircom.net

So the IDA sees most new jobs next year coming from digital, IT and services- is it time that the massive expenditure in science (biotechnology and medicine) is evaluated to see if there has been any worthwhile return?
Forfas pushed for billions to be spent in this area but had they actually done their homework?
Perhaps we will be told that seven years is too early to see any return and that they need extra billions and another five years.

It seems surprising that the SFI budget has not come up for discussion in any of the election debates given the billions spent so far.
Has any cost benefit analysis been done to justify the spend so far?
