life science start-up day

1x a year

Networking
about the program

In Germany, start-ups are gaining more attention all the time, and “start-up founder” is now widely seen as a realistic career option. However, researchers and start-ups in the life sciences face special challenges when it comes to implementing technology transfer and establishing themselves in the market.

The Life Science Start-up Day is a conference for those who have founded a company and those who wish to, as well as for scientists and other network partners, with the purpose of  facilitating exchange within the life science community.

More about the Life Science Start-up Day can be found here.
