Catalan biotech sector to meet in Stockholm

The sixteenth edition of the BIO-Europe Spring (BES), the main springtime partnering conference of the sector, takes place this year in Stockholm from 4th to 6th April. The Catalan delegation, coordinated by Biocat once again, will be formed by 24 companies and entities –among which are the companies BioingeniumEsteveIntelligent Pharma and Iproteos, based at the Barcelona Science Park (PCB)–, representing more than a half of the Spanish participation at the event.

Bio-Europe Spring is the main springtime partnering conference of the sector and attracts every year (for three days) the main biotech, pharma and financial leaders and emerging companies. BES is organized by EBD Group, in collaboration with the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO).

The event –which was held in Barcelona in 2010 and 2013– attracts more than 2,000 delegates each year from roughly fifty countries and more than 1,300 companies from the biopharmaceutical, biotechnology and financial sectors.

The highlight of the event is the one-to-one meetings, but it also features workshops, company presentations and panel discussions on different topics including business development and funding,

Biocat, like previous editions, will have a booth (number #35), which will be available to members of the BioRegion of Catalonia as a point of contact and to distribute promotional materials.
