BioFIT fostering innovation and transfer
08 November 2019
1,300 international actors from 35+ countries: BioFIT has taken on a whole new dimension becoming the meeting point in Europe for tech transfer, early-stage innovations and Series A investment in Life Sciences.
On December 10th and 11th, 2019, the BioFIT event will gather more than 1,300 international actors of the Life Sciences sector. BioFIT is both the leading partnering event in Europe for technology transfer, academia-industry collaborations, early-stage innovation deals and the European marketplace for pre-seed, seed and Series A investment rounds in the Life Sciences field.
A conference programme that aims to widen the scope of the topics discussed
This year, the plenary session will wonder “What is pharma looking for nowadays?”, focusing on collaboration and licensing opportunities pharma is looking for while changing from a drug developer to a healthcare solution provider. It aims at understanding pharma’s viewpoint, the consequences for the orientation deals, the way it is going to influence the relationships with academia and biotech start-ups. Also, the One Health concept will be explored through two conferences about animal healthcare solutions and animal health industry.
Facilitating access to financing for bio entrepreneurs
The BioFIT pitch sessions offer the opportunity to detect the most innovative and promising start-ups, R&D projects, licensing opportunities and services in order to foster partnerships and business development in the Life Sciences field. Pitch sessions are a great opportunity for bio entrepreneurs to showcase in front of potential partners: The Start-up Slams for start-up seeking to raise a seed or Series A financing round to showcase their project, the Collaborative and Licensing Opportunity Presentations for TTOs, universities, research institutes and companies to showcase their early-stage assets and, new this year, the Service Presentations for service providers and technology platforms with an innovative offer to showcase their offers
