Upcoming Forum of the BioRegion, the summit of the Catalan healthcare and life sciences ecosystem

To celebrate its 10th anniversary, Biocat is holding a new edition of the Forum of the BioRegion of Catalonia on 25 November at the Palau de Congressos de Catalunya in order to bring together the stakeholders in the Catalan healthcare and life sciences ecosystem and reflect on the challenges and opportunities available in this current environment of change and sectorial transformation. The latest session brought together more than 450 representatives from Catalan organizations and this year Biocat –with headquarters at the Barcelona Scientific Park – is opening the event up to international clusters.


The Forum’s program features a much-needed comprehensive global view of the current trends and future challenges for the healthcare and life sciences sector. It is an essential event for anyone interested in staying up-to-date and discovering new ways to create value, identify business opportunities and gain competitiveness. It has been designed to inspire participants with experiences that can be applied to their business model, while also boosting their knowledge of advances in the industry with information from top international experts.

At the event, international experts will present their experiences with public-private partnership and discuss the trends and future of biopharma, medtech and digital health, within a global framework characterized by economic uncertainty, market volatility, regulatory changes and increasing demand for innovation and generating value. Each panel discussion will cover a transversal topic that is a priority in the BioRegion of Catalonia.

At the Forum, to celebrate its tenth anniversary, Biocat will also kick off a series of dialogs on the BioRegion: “10 conversations to explain the next 10 years”. These dialogs will take a closer look at topics of interest to anyone who is part of the ecosystem in Catalonia. The first session will feature Andreu Mas Colell and Josep Maria Martorell discussing science.
