The event will be a panel discussion on Biotech startups and will serve as an information session for our accelerator Biostars.

The event will consist of a short informative session, providing an overview, key dates and the application process for the BioStars programme. We also have scheduled a panel discussion involving members of different areas of expertise. A drinks reception will be held following the session, which will serve as an ideal opportunity to network with like-minded individuals.
