BRUSSELS and LYON - EuropaBio, representing the European Biotech Industry
and The World Life Sciences Forum BioVision have joined forces to provide a
special industry track at BioVision 2005.
The Industry Track will provide opportunities for Europe?s emerging
biotechnology companies to meet with leaders from some of the continent?s
largest pharmaceutical, chemical and food companies, who traditionally come
together every two years in what is known as the Davos of Life Sciences. The
World Life Sciences Forum BioVision will take place in Lyon, France from
April 11-15, 2005 and will bring together leaders of Science, Society and
Industry to discuss and debate social, environmental and economic issues
impacting the Life Sciences.
?We are delighted to have the opportunity to implement an Industry Track in
this important event,? says Johan Vanhemelrijck, Secretary General of
EuropaBio. ?It will allow the emerging biotech industry sector to discuss
key issues at the very highest levels.?
BioVision enables all stakeholders to discuss issues in Life Sciences from
the perspective of Science, Industry and Society. It offers a unique
opportunity for all to exchange views, thereby contributing to the
understanding, acceptance and development of Life Sciences. BioVision's
objective is to further the development of Life Sciences by means which are
beneficial to humankind and the environment, to Society at Large, and which
are ethically sound. BioVision has established itself as a platform for
top-level dialogue between scientists, public authorities and international
organisations, pharmaceutical and AgFood industry executives, patient and
consumer association representatives, and a wide range of representatives
from Society at Large, including most major Non-Governmental Organisations
and leading Media.
"At long last, Industry, Science and Society will be represented on an equal
footing, in what will be the largest gathering ever in Europe of Life
Sciences experts" says Eric Poincelet, Director General of BioVision. "This
World Premier will set a standard for what can be achieved when dialogue and
bioethics are given full priority".
EuropaBio Industry Track will provide a vital bridge between BioVision and
the concurrent business partnering event BioSquare, a unique concept pulling
together the biotech industry from North America, Europe and Asia. BioSquare
attracts large, medium and small sized companies via an innovative
partnering platform. The needs of the 1,500 emerging biotech companies
feature prominently in the EuropaBio Track at BioVision; this Track will be
open to BioSquare participants.
EuropaBio, the European Association for Bioindustries, has 35 corporate
members operating worldwide and 24 national biotechnology associations
representing some 1200 small and medium sized enterprises involved in
research and development, testing, manufacturing and distribution of
