Partnering with the North – Bringing the Life Sciences Community Together

Partnering with the North – Bringing the Life Sciences Community Together

Online Event
Wednesday 8th July 2020


Join Bionow and our expert speakers for this one-day online event which will focus on the opportunities for partnerships, collaboration and strengthening supply chains across the North and beyond. The past few months has presented challenges in establishing and maintaining your contacts and suppliers and forming partnerships has been difficult or near impossible. After listening to our members we have therefore established this new online event presenting virtual partnering and short panel sessions focused on bringing the community together.
Despite the recent challenges, the life science industry continues to thrive - research moves on, new technologies are being embraced, recruitment continues, funding competitions are open and collaborations are being sought. There are therefore opportunities to capitalise upon and we can all be involved in this progress and success!

The day will feature 2 interactive panel sessions plus access to the video partnering system allowing you to pre-book one-to-one meetings with other delegates right across the day. There will also be virtual networking opportunities throughout the day and the event will conclude with the popular Biotech & Beers which is always a great opportunity to meet others and socialise.

We have delegates from Science and Technology Facilities Council, AF ChemPharm, Chiesi, Cobra Biologics, Deepbridge Capital LLP, Newcastle University, Inventya, Innovate UK, Markel, Praetura Ventures, Durham University, Colibri Scientific, Slater Heelis LLP, Bonaccord, Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies, Io-Cyte, University of Manchester, AbbVie Ltd, Catapult Ventures, University of Leeds, Biocair, Arcinova, Quay Pharma, University of Liverpool, CEIDR Innovations, Tectores Ltd, University of Edinburgh, Cryoniss Ltd, Atelerix, RSM, Impact Data Metrics, ramarketing, Iksuda Therapeutics, Bruntwood SciTech, QV Bioelectronics, Life Science Integrates, Medicines Discovery Catapult, The Biosphere, Marks & Clerk, University of Sunderland, Mills & Reeve, High Force Research, Industrial Technology Systems, Manchester Biogel, Keele University, SciTech Daresbury, Centre for Process Innovation, MIDAS, Innovation Agency, University of York, Teeside University, Fairhursts Design Group, Cinetique Translations, Veratrak, QIAGEN, Xenogesis and many more companies to follow....
