European biotech & pharma partnering conference, virtual again in 2021

From 27-30 September 2021, the EU-Japan Centre for Industrial Cooperation and Osaka Bio Headquarters (Osaka Prefectural Government) will again organise the Virtual Biotech & Pharma Partnering Conference, a one-to-one business-matching event.
This annual event held since 2016 in Osaka, was successfully taken online last year with 152 companies attending and 374 meetings, a more than 30% growth to previous physical events. The event is also a great example for cooperation between European and Japanese Clusters, the Enterprise Europe Network and member states’ Trade Promotion Organisations. Thanks to the organisers support, participation in this event will be free of charge.
The majority of participants from Japan will be pharma and biotech companies from Osaka and the surrounding Kansai region, the historical powerhouse of the Japanese pharma industry. But the participation from other regions in Japan has been increasing, especially last year.
Typical participants from Europe are biotech ventures and service providers for drug discovery and drug development. As elsewhere, there is a growing interest in Japan for digital drug discovery technologies, as well as for digital medicine/therapeutics such as drug-device and app-device combinations.
All meetings will be arranged between participants via an online platform and will take place in the form of video calls, which open seamlessly on the same platform. Registration is scheduled to open on 21 June and meetings can be requested immediately after opening.
In addition to company profiles, participants will be encouraged to submit detailed product and service profiles in the Marketplace section of the platform. To ensure a high quality of the event, organisers reserve the right to reject profiles that do not fit the purpose of the event.
