EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation and Osaka Bio Headquarters (Osaka Prefectural Government) co-organise "Biotech & Pharma Partnering Conference", a one-to-one business matching event annually since 2016.

This year, the Biotech & Pharma Partnering Conference, which has been held in Osaka for the last four years in October, was held online from 28 to 30 September. All meetings between participants this year took place in a form of video calls.
Despite the ongoing coronavirus outbreak, we have been successfully organising the event in support and cooperation with many European clusters, embassies and consulates.
Participant numbers went up by more than one third, and the number of meetings increased by around 40% compared to the last year's physical event held in Osaka.
Results from the satisfaction survey suggest that many companies explored new business opportunities throughout this event and discussions with potential partners are continuing.

The highlights in numbers:

  • One-to-one meetings : 374 meetings
  • Participants : 152 companies / organisations (Europe : 104, Japan : 48)
  • European Countries : 19

(Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, The Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Sweden, Ukraine, UK)
