Business Meeting with Japanese Life Sciences Industries in Osaka 2017

On Tuesday 10 October 2017, the "European Biotech & Pharma Partnering Conference, Osaka, 2017" was organised at the Congrès Convention Center (http://www.congre-cc.jp/en/) in Osaka, Japan.

During the event, business representatives of EU companies had the opportunity to attend pre-arranged B2B meetings with Japanese companies from the Kansai region. The event serves a perfect platform to meet representatives of Japanese companies and accelerate opportunities for potential business partnerships between EU and Japanese companies. The event kicked off with an opening speech at 9 AM and the B2B meetings took place shortly after (from 9:20 AM to 3:50 PM).

2016 partnering event (see 2016 event video on: http://www.eu-japan.eu/videos/BtoB_event_osaka.mp4 ) attracted over 60 Japanese companies and organisations from the Kansai region which resulted in 288 pre-arranged B2B meetings between Japanese and European companies. Meetings were successfully set-up thanks to a matchmaking platform by the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN Japan).
