The French cluster Alsace BioValley and BIOPRO Baden-Württemberg will hold their 14th Meet & Match event on 27th November in Strasbourg on the topic of strategies for drug discovery and drug development.

The event will cover a wide range of areas – from simulation, screening and target identification technologies to the repurposing of already known active ingredients / drugs.

The Meet & Match takes place the day before the partnering event BioFit.

Company representatives and project leaders from the health industry as well as academic researchers from both sides of the Rhine – France (Grand Est region) and Germany (Baden-Württemberg) – meet each other to generate new impulses or partnerships for joint developments. This event will be a great opportunity for biotech companies, contract research organisations and academic labs to present and envision future approaches, which would match the pharma industry.

To intensify the networking between the attendees they will have the possibility to present their company or research group in a two-minute-presentation prior to the networking coffee in the short presentation session. The number of partcipants in this session is limited and arranged for producing, researching and developing companies and research institutions. If you want to participate in the Short Presentation Session, apply therefore in your registration until 6th November, 2017.

The participation in the event is free of charge. The presentations will be held in English.
